A new website aims to stem over-consumption by helping its members share, buy, sell, rent or barter products they own or services they can render. It is ASSK.biz, for Asset Sharing and Sustainability Klub.
Sara Hope is an area manager, based in the Hollywood neighborhood, for ASSK.biz. Those who want to buy used equipment, sell used furniture, rent a room or barter their services can use the ASSK.biz platform, according to Ashley K. Carrithers, founder and CEO.
Carrithers, who has been interested in environmental issues since the 1970s, said she founded ASSK.biz to provide both a venue for sharing assets to reduce pollution and providing a forum for a socio-politico voice.
Free memberships are available, Carrithers said, and no transaction fees are charged.
Hope said she is inviting local residents to join ASSK.biz. Her e-mail is moc.l1511190839iamg@1511190839snoit1511190839aerce1511190839poh1511190839.
