Have You Seen CollaborativeConsumption.com Lately?

Have you seen the new CollaborativeConsumption.com? We just can’t get enough. We’ve always relied on the site for the best sharing economy content online, and now there’s even more to love. Here are some of our favorite things about the new site: In addition to great content and a sleek new design, there’s now a massive directory of all things collcons. It’s super easy to search for sharing platforms in any category, like food, fashion, or travel. The resources section includes just about everything you’d ever need to know about the sharing economy. The new events page includes all the major collaborative consumption events from around the world in one place. A job board is on the way that will make it possible for sharing junkies to easily find open opportunities at collaborative companies like TaskRabbit. So cool! Congrats to Rachel Botsman, Lauren Anderson, and team for an awesome update!

Take twenty minutes to be as inspired as we are by Rachel’s talk:
