Over the years, we somehow manage to collect all sorts of stuff most of which is no longer needed or wanted. However, maybe somebody else could use it! The problem is how would you know who wants something that you have sitting around the home or office? Well a bunch of designers from Sweden known as Qaos have an answer. It is an app for iPhone owners and it is called quite simply Getrid! The goal of this app is to find a new home for your unwanted gear, with a view of it being reused by someone else; it is one of tackling overconsumption!
The service is free to use, although at the moment coverage might be an issue but, as more people sign up this is something that could really take off. It costs nothing and yet Getrid saves on waste by giving a new life or use to unwanted stuff that is lying around doing nothing. The Getrid app is available from iTunes now and is free to download.
