Save by money by borrowing items instead of buying Do a good turn Choose to donate proceeds to a favourite good cause or help the community by sharing assets Live a richer life Take up a new hobby or sport, learn a new skill. Ecomodo enables users to borrow rather than buy and opens the door to new experiences at low or no cost Be green Communities can prevent waste and reduce their collective effect on the environment by pooling resources
supporting local libraries.. We believe there are 3 ways we believe that Ecomodo can support libraries.. 1.Become a good cause on Ecomodo & fundraise 2.Facilitate a community share point to increase footfall 3.Become a lender of all sorts of useful items
1. become a good cause Ecomodo provides an effortless and everyday way to fundraise.. Register as a good cause on Ecomodo It’s free to register as a good cause & you’ll need is a Paypal account. Once registered any of our lenders can choose to donate to you. Promote Ecomodo as a new way to fundraise for your library The more people that use Ecomodo, the bigger our network of lenders and borrowers becomes and the more you and the environment can benefit Create a lending circle for your library Our lending circles act like 'virtual' sheds for any type of community. Create a circle & invite your staff, volunteers and visitors to join and pool their assets. Personalise your circle with an icon, description, URL back to your own site and promote your good cause.
2. ecomodo share-point Be a 'good neighbour' and help facilitate local lending and borrowing by introducing an ecomodo share-point A local library could act as an alternative venue for individuals to use purely for dropping off and picking up items between each other. It could be safer or more convenient than travelling to someone's house or staying in to lend equipment out. A Share-Point gives people a new reason to visit the library & may increase footfall.
3. become a lender of all sorts of useful items.. Ecomodo enables the lending of all sorts of household goods so your library could create it's own 'community shed' containing all sorts of items to lend out, with the proceeds going to your good cause. See if there are items your community would be happy to donate to you and start to fill your shed for free.
