Don’t buy, borrow: „dingdong“ – a project by the Movement Ecologique
Drill, grill or dinghy: most of us have items we only rarely use. Occasionally the exact opposite seems to happen: we need an item we don’t have. “dingdong” offers a solution: now you can share your items with others or search for people willing to lend you what you need. This is really practical: not only do you save money, but you also get to meet new people and you are doing something good for the environment too by reducing waste.
You can easily take part in the project:
These two possibilities work independently from each other, but can be used jointly. Taking part is easy and anyone is free to participate. The only prerequisite is a respectful handling of the borrowed object. If you are willing to trust fellow members of your community, then “dingdong” could a great and enriching project for you!
The basis of the project is the swiss initiative www.pumpipumpe.ch that made its way around many european countries.
