The Open Shed message is simple:

We CAN make use of the latest gadgets, still have exciting life experiences and de-clutter our lives at the same time through sharing what we have with other people. We CAN make a difference through being smart about our consumption.

What began as an idea that touched two people is now their very own ethical, environmental, practical and super fun start-up. Built to be a sustainable business, Open Shed only take a small percentage of each successful rental transaction so as to cover costs associated with building, running and maintaining the site. And as passionate supporters of this growing movement, Lisa and Duncan actively seek opportunities to get the word out about other collaborative consumption ideas, sustainable businesses and ways to help the community continue to grow through sharing.
