From having to sharing

Everybody has some items they don't use very often, for example a ladder, a drill or a backpack. These things could be very useful for others,whilst only used a few times a year by the owner. That’s why Ghent locals Kristof Morlion, Lieven D’hont and Ludo Dhelft created WijDelen.be (WeShare). Neighbours can use the website to post items they would like to share, and to browse items being offered by others in their neighbourhood. When our grandparents needed, for example, a ladder, they could just pop round to their neighbours. The purpose of this website is to go back to that traditional sense of community, as well as helping citizens save money and protect the environment in the process.
