Today marks the launch of Peers, a grassroots movement to grow, mainstream and protect the sharing economy. Peers focuses on users of collaborative consumption startups and services, aiming to unite collaborative people and help push forward the sharing economy. Rachel Botsman, founder of Collaborative Lab and Collaborative Consumption, will serve on the board of the new organization. The initiative begins with a Peers Pledge, asking users to add their voice in support of the sharing economy whenever they can. You can join here.
The Collaborative Consumption team is excited to see this new global grassroots organisation launch to help collaborative consumers around the world band together and show support for the sharing economy companies who are making a real difference in their lives. Together we can help people a 21st century economy powered by meaningful moments of exchange and interaction.
