More than just cheap
Some time ago I got up Best of HR – Berufebilder.de® the future trend Collaborative Consumption on the example Airnb.de presented. Here, users from 190 countries can rent or rent their private apartments as holiday homes.
It is about more than just cheap to come to a holiday home: Community action should help to save resources and thus the environment by sharing. The idea behind it is to live a new kind, communal way.
Community shopping: reselling instead of throwing away
For example, by not throwing things away, but selling or exchanging. This promotes tolerance and trust in society as well as networking and communication among people.
Now there is a new trend in this regard: the joint shopping. No, it does not mean that you meet with others and go shopping together. Instead, as a community, one buys and sells private, used items. Collobarative Consumption in Wortinn, so to speak.
You can also sell on Ebay - but ...
It was triggered by an iPhone app called Stuffle - a word combination of Stuff and Sale. The basic idea is nothing new, you will say: With Ebay one could already sell used objects for a long time. Right! But the question is: how!
Because the effort to click through the various options on Ebay is immense - even if there is an app for example, with which one can photograph objects and then immediately adjust. In addition, Ebay is quite anonymous and there are still many people with unfair commercial practices on the road.
For a better feel
In short: when I think of Ebay, I am now fleeing the desire to sell something. I prefer to dispose of objects elsewhere, by giving them away, donating or throwing away.
For a better feeling now wants to worry Stuffle. Martin Weigert has written extensively on Netzwertig a few weeks ago. Now if you look at the tweets like this, the app seems to be really fun.
There are even people who sell their organic olive oil there. The setting including the photo can be done in just two clicks. And the annoying shipping is eliminated, because you offer the thing like the flea market around the corner - the Location Based Service of Smart Phones sends greetings. Markus Mayr describes it this way: "Browse: That's probably the best thing a flea market has to offer. And that's digital now. Like right now? Ever heard of Ebay? OK, Ebay and Co. have been around for a while. But it's hardly any easier than Stuffle - buying and selling, browsing for offers around the corner. And that is exactly the strength of Stuffle: the "Around the corner". Because the app shows - based on the localization function of the smartphone - offers from the environment, broken down by distance (1 km, 3 km, 5km, etc.). "
Shops bring fun and promote the community
You can see: doing business can also be enjoyable and fun. It can promote the common sense. And in this context, collaborative consumption.
