Sharing has always been a quality that people have found virtuous and beneficial to those who are in need. However, with an unsettled economy, the Internet has become a portal for a collaborative of people to work together in a post-recession era. Businesses such as Uber and Airbnb have helped people become more self-sufficient economically by opening up their vehicles and homes to others.
When people join forces online, they are able to create sustainability socially, economically and environmentally. They can profit from these new ideas without expending too much energy, time or money.
