Streetbank brings home the delights and practical value of that old truism “share and share alike.” Local residents are invited to join the Sooke chapter of this remarkable, UK-based, internationally operating collaborative-consumption collective. The local group currently involves 26 Sookies sharing 46 useful items – a utility trailer, food dehydrator, cider bottles, woodworking & gardening tools, books (in English & German), DVDs, volunteer dogwalking & babysitting services, and much more – with each other within town limits.
Register for free and join one of the smartest solutions yet to building community while taking a stance and opting out (in some small but meaningful ways) from the consumer culture’s message that we all need at least one of everything.
