Eleanor recently took part in a discussion at #TheNTWKTalks, exploring the intersection of the sharing economy and sustainability, as well as her book "Thanks for Sharing". In this interview, hosted by Anna Noakes Schulze from THE NTWK, Eleanor talks about about encouraging businesses and individuals to adopt more sustainable consumption practices and the significance of second-hand purchases, sharing, renting, and upcycling as effective strategies to counter overconsumption. Anna and Eleanor also discuss a future where these practices are integrated into a single platform, making sustainable choices not only accessible but also convenient for everyone.
The event also included Marina Planas, and Peter C. Evans, PhD, who shared their perspectives on the potential impact of the sharing economy on our collective future. For those who missed the live discussion, check out this article here.
