Sharing Economies
The choices we make about purchasing and maintaining our "stuff" can have a big impact on our personal finances as well as the environment.  Perhaps you can find what you need at a second hand store or fix your broken item instead of throwing it away.  Maybe your neighbor is willing to lend their canning equipment or share the cost of renting that rototiller you need once a year.  There are dozens of ways to save money, energy and resources, if you stop to consider the options. In Eugene there's a growing interest in sharing and borrowing- actions that have the added value of building stronger ties with family, friends and neighbors.  Check out the Quick Links for a few resources to help you change your consumption habits.
