Earth Week 2013: Sharing Is the New Shopping!
Why shop when you can share? On April 18, Green is Universal—and many NBCUniversal brands—are joining the sharing economy by kicking off “Share and Tell,” this year’s Earth Week campaign.
We’ve partnered with yerdle, a new online platform that helps you share stuff with your friends. Each of our brands has created a yerdle “Share and Tell” app for their Facebook page around a specific theme of items to exchange. On the apps, you and your friends can give away, get and loan things with each other—thus reducing waste and conserving natural resources. You can also enter to win cool items that our shows and stars are sharing with you.
Here’s a look at who’s participating, their theme and a few (but not all!) of the items they’re sharing:
