Sharing is caring

BoiteAuxLettresPumpipumpeHere’s a rather nice way of developing your neighbourhood sharing circles. Pumpipumpe is a Swiss project that is encouraging residents to place stickers on their mailbox to denote the goods they’re willing to lend to their neighbors (and if you’re wondering about the name, it developed from a scheme indicating which households had a bike pump to loan to stranded cyclists). It’s worth a look just to see the variety of stickers – it’s not all about ladders and bike pumps, good people; anyone got a ping-pong set or disco ball lying idle?
