Saturday: Sharing Economy | Waste Reduction Week in Canada

Saturday: Sharing Economy

 

Access over ownership and the sharing economy are important pillars that contribute to a circular economy. By shifting to access over ownership, the responsibility falls to manufacturers to make longer lasting and more efficient products that are designed with repair and reuse as primary considerations. Millions of Canadians engage in the sharing economy everyday - through ride sharing apps, libraries, rental services, online music/ video streaming and more - often not realizing their contribution to the circular economy. New for 2020, Sharing Economy Saturday will educate Canadians on access over ownership and how this concept reduces consumption and waste.
