Sixteen Reasons why Vaccinations and Human Behaviour cannot offer Full Protection against Covid-19 The global pandemic will haunt most countries, perhaps all, on this Earth for years to come.

Totnes Initiative. Share Shed. The Power of Sharing items in the Local Community

AN ONGOING TOTNES INIATIVE EXPANDS TO FOUR MORE LOCAL TOWNS

Extract. “After reflecting on the idea, and assessing the community’s interest, we set up the Share Shed in Totnes, Devon in 2017. Since then, we’ve been sharing our collection of over 350 items, with over 1,000 members.

So far we have facilitated over 1,600 loans, helping people save money, storage space and natural resources.

We’ve gone mobile, and set up the world’s first travelling library of things, which allows us to share our items even further, and to more vulnerable communities in neighbouring towns!”
