Streetbank – a new website to help people share with their neighbours

Streetbank.com is a national website, launched in April, which enables greater sharing and lending between neighbours. It is a giant attic garden shed, toolkit, fancy dress chest, library and DVD collection, and skills bank for you and anyone living within a mile of your home.

Established as a charity and run by a couple of part-time volunteers, it was described by Chainreactiononline.com as an ‘inspired idea’ and now has over 6,700 members across the UK. Primarily, it aims to: (1) enable greater community engagement; (2) challenge the consumer culture in which we live; and (3) encourage more sustainable lifestyles.
