Concepts that makes it possible to share your power drill or car

If you do not own your power drill, but just borrow or rent it when you need it, others can benefit from the same drill in the meantime. This is an example of collaborative consumption, which may lead to better usage of material resources to the benefit of the environment.

In another project, you can work to develop an internet portal where people can share their car with neighbors or others in the local community. This way people can make money by renting out their car, when not using it, those without cars do not have to buy one themselves, and there will be a need for fewer cars overall.
