Did you know that manufacturing every kg of technology product leaves behind on an average 3700 kg of waste material, which ends up harming our environment? In fact most of the gadgets we use have an even more skewed ratio of waste production and are highest producer of land (or sea) debris fills! Products like mobile phones, laptops and televisions generate huge amounts of toxic and non-biodegradable waste. Yet, for decades the whole premise for successful economy and successful companies is based on more production and more consumption - buy more, sell more. This buy-more sell-more mindset creates an unending cycle, depleting valuable resources and creating mountains of waste.
RentSher will aim for a fresh approach towards a world where we as consumers consume the things that we require, without the burden of owning them every single time and in the process, not only do we save some money, but also rightfully gain a sense of pride in having played our part for making the earth a more sustainable place.
We at RentSher want to set up an ecosystem for reusing via renting and sharing products. We consider it as a victory every time a product is reused rather than owned, thus adding to the burgeoning manufacturing and disposal numbers. Our effort is to enable the platform where people can seamlessly rent out their spare products and also look for products to rent, which they would need occasionally or want to try out. RentSher is an effort against mindless consumerism, where buying is promoted as the first impulse; rather than looking at alternatives or reusing.
‘Rent’ here assumes the more general form of sharing, exchanging, borrowing, etc. The 'Sher' refers to the tiger, which at one time was the pride of the nation ruling nations magnificent ecosystem - the dense jungles. Those are today endangered by the growing needs of population and the very existence of the tiger is under threat.
And of course at RentSher we aspire to "save the tiger!"
