Borrow and Share

When we share more, we also consume less. And by doing so, we reduce our clutter and free up space. 

Sharing can be as simple as loaning a specialty baking pan to your neighbor, organizing a clothing swap with your friends, or even checking out books from the library rather than buying any of these items new. Portland is also full of organizations that facilitate sharing between neighbors – offering tools and equipment, space, clothes, toys and more.

Borrowing and sharing also helps build community by fostering connections with neighbors and friends, which makes Portland a better place for all of us. What does sharing mean to you?
