Help Yourself & Others
There is something special about providing a service or a product for someone who really needs it. Just ask any retailer or service provider and they’ll tell you. If your day job is service, then you already know how it feels. When your listing makes someone’s day that’s a feeling that can lift your mood drastically! Plus, helping yourself make a little extra cash doesn’t hurt.
Being Involved In A Community
Psychology and evolution tell us that human beings are social creatures. Without a social circle we are known to develop anti-social behaviours which is totally cool if you’re comfortable with that, but for most people it’s important to feel apart of something bigger. The rental community is a way to connect with neighbours and help out others. In fact, Rentcharlie was born from the idea of helping others who are in need of support. Read our origin story here.
Doing Your Part To Reduce Waste
Both a rational benefit as well as an emotional benefit, doing your part to reduce waste in the world is crucial! When you rent stuff instead of buying it you’re contributing to the demographic of people who actively try to make a difference every single day. It’s a simple step towards reducing your footprint, and one that we highly encourage!
Having a feeling of responsibility is a human trait that can’t be undervalued. This feeling of responsibility comes from being financially responsible, as well as environmentally responsible.
Being A Part Of Cultural Growth
The sharing economy is essentially changing the way we function as a modern western society. Getting on board with new cultural developments like the sharing economy will ease your way into it when it really takes off. You will be able to teach others and retain an amount of pride from contributing to cultural growth just by joining in to rent stuff!
