A Day in the Life of the Sharing Economy

The movement is clear, and the results are undeniable. The sharing economy is a $26 billion industry and is redefining business infrastructures across the board. Uber and Lyft have upended the transportation industry, while Airbnb has transformed the way we look at hospitality. Thanks to the sharing economy, we now have the power to consume collaboratively, relying on the resources of one another, rather than a third party vendor. We've decreased consumption of resources, and maximized our own personal assets for a limitless self-sustaining industry.

We recently embarked on a project to elevate the awareness of the sharing economy and are proud to share a look into a Day in the Life of the Sharing Economy. This movement is not just a trend, it's a way of life.
