Peerby is a mega cool new peer-to-peer lending technology platform in the Netherland. By using Peerby, members can borrow and share items needed or owned with neighbours in a safe and fun environment.
The theory goes - you don’t always own what you need and you don’t always need what you own, right?! Whether it’s a barbecue, a power drill, a tent or a dress, we will find a neighbour that’s willing to lend it out to you within 30 minutes of where you are. Peerby say that becoming a member has the same CO2 impact as planting 100 trees!
Peerby’s uniqueness lies in its proactive approach: you don’t just post the item you’re looking for; the site asks your 100 closest Peerby neighbours if they have the item.
