Peerby is an app that allows you to lend and borrow things from your neighbours. This app makes perfect sense when you stop to think about how often you really use that socket set in your garage.
The app is simple to use and lets you know what kind of items are being shared in your neighbourhood. Over and above the obvious benefits of saving money and emissions, it might just be a nice way to meet your neighbours as well.
The app’s success depends on everyone using it – and whether or not that will happen remains to be seen – but we certainly love the idea.
