Eleanor's debut 'Thanks for Sharing' published

Thanks for Sharing is now available in the UK in paperback, ebook and audiobook, and coming soon in the US, Australia and New Zealand. In Eleanor's 'memoir-meets-guidebook' to the sharing economy, she sets out a bold vision of how sustainable sharing can save us money, and lead to a happier future.


What is the Sharing Economy? How can it help us live more affordable, more sustainable, and ultimately more fulfilling lives? What would happen if for one year a family pledged to share as much as they possibly can? Instead of owning more and more stuff, what it’s like to stop owning things and borrow, lend, rent and swap instead?


In her 'laugh out loud' book, Eleanor straps us into on her year-long experiment along with her somewhat reluctant family. Over the course of the year, with the aid of various sharing apps, they will pledge to buy as few new things as possible, instead relying on the power of sharing, lending, renting and borrowing to supply their needs. Each chapter introduces a different type of sharing into her day to day life, from the little ‘things’ (food, clothes) to the bigger ’things’ (cars, furniture, the space around us), and shows how the growth of tech has revolutionised an age-old practice.


The book contains best-for recommendations based around different types of sharing, to create an easily accessible shortcut into sharing. Written with warm and relatable humour as well as a deeply-researched knowledge of the history of sharing, this unmissable guide could truly change the way you consume. You can buy Thanks for Sharing here, or find it in your local bookshop.
