Culture of Sharing in Germany
Against the tide of instant gratification, impulse buying, chain stores, and fast fashion, a thriftier, more environmentally friendly trend has emerged, and it is known as 'the sharing economy.' The boom of shared travel in the latter half of the last decade is but one example of the sharing economy. The internet has made the premise of sharing and trading goods both quick and easy, and you can now rent, borrow, sell, buy, or swap almost anything online.
