Problem We Face Today
Over-consumption is a key problem in the modern developed world. We produce consumer products and people are encouraged to buy. The internet has facilitated worldwide purchasing which has led to over-production and over-consumption. Products are bought in large quantities and product life-cycles are shortening with products being discarded at an increasing pace to make way for newer models. But many of these products are not biodegradable or recyclable. People buy these products only to throw them away after a few months and they buy something else in place, a newer model, a faster product, a better model etc. Landfills all over the world are filling up with items that are not necessarily unusable, in fact many of the items such as handbags, electrical and electronic equipment, music instruments, etc are still in perfect working order when they are being thrown away and such items that are tossed in the trash on a daily basis take up 36.6% of our landfills internationally, which is more than a quarter of all the waste we produce every day. Many of these items are not biodegradable or recyclable and we are polluting the environment when we throw these items away. This over-consumption is not sustainable and we need to change the human consumption pattern.
United Nations Sustainable Development Goals
The United Nations call for sustainable development and ECrent is committed to implementation to deliver the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Ecrent aims to bring about a consumption revolution to change human consumption pattern from buying and owning everything, to renting to maximize the use of existing resources and minimize wastage. Ecrent’s goal is to make consumption more sustainable and accelerate the adoption of green economy. Ecrent encourages the owners of assets to share them with others. The platform enables those who have to share their idle assets with those who have not and this helps reduce inequality. Big ticket items that the poor cannot afford to buy are now available for rental at a fraction of the cost. Assets can be accessible and enjoyed by all which lead to social equity and social harmony. Ecrent also promotes green entrepreneurship and encourages people to start their own renting businesses around the world regardless of their status, genders or abilities. With the ecrent platform, anyone can start their own rental businesses working from home. This contributes to employment and sustainable economic growth. ECrent supports the United Nations' Public Private Partnership (PPP) Initiative and welcomes participation and partnership from Governments and publc organisations around the world.

Save Money Rent instead of Buy
ECrent provides a platform for people to rent instead of buying frivolously. Through our platform, renters can contact owners direct, so not only will you save money by renting, you can also help protect the environment.
Go Green and Make Money
For owners who have anything you no longer need, but the items are still usable, then you don't need to dispose of them. Simply place them on ECrent and you may just find that person who would like to utilize your items. That way you can make some extra cash with your idle assets and at the same time help cut down the number of waste products that enter our landfills on a daily basis and protect our environment. Remember, putting your items up for rent on ECrent means going green and helping protect the environment.
Try before Buy
Not sure if a product that you like is suitable for you long term? Now you can try out a product before actually buying it for real so that you can decide whether you like it before you actually buy it and keep it for good. For a limited rental fee, you can try out any item that you can imagine and some items have lease to buy options so you can actually keep the items if you decide you like them after renting them for a while.
Humans are selfish and always short-sighted. We took natural resources from our Mother Earth to make our own things, generating greenhouse gases in the process. Then we trash the things we make, turning this earth into a rubbish dump. We don’t have any consideration for later generations of both human beings and other species.
We need to change our ways.
Scientists warned that if the situation doesn't change, temperature of Earth will rise quickly by 2 degrees. It will become irreversible and catastrophic, causing many sufferings and deaths around the world. Earthquakes, droughts and famines, cities being submerged under water and millions of lives being displaced and dying.
The situation is urgent, but there are still somethings we can all do in order to help. And here are some basic things which we call the 4Rs to combat with the global warming:
Reduce Energy Use
We can reduce energy consumption by turning down the air-cons. Switch off the lights when not needed. Take public transportation instead of driving when we can.
We can Rent instead of buy to reduce overconsumption. When you buy something, think of all the energy and resources that go into produce that item and what happens when we no longer need it and have to trash it.
Re-Use as much as possible.
Bags, boxes, bottles, furnitures etc can all be re-used. We don’t need to buy new ones all the time. Second hand items are just as good.
Recycle everything we use daily. For example, recycle bottle, paper, plastic, wood...etc. Reduce to take source from the nature.
Start doing today!
These are all simple things if we can do it together, it will make a difference. Don’t wait, start doing something right now!!
Before buying from Amazon, consider renting an item instead of buying it. Try ECrent.com
Renting an item and use it for only the time that you need. ECrent is the world’s largest online rental platform and includes everything from cars to houses to clothing and the amount of items is growing by the day.
Before you go online shopping, there’s an alternative you might want to consider — renting.
Quote from Digital Journal:
Renting is at the forefront of the sharing economy and uniquely positioned to assist those who are looking to live a digital nomad lifestyle. If you love Craigslist, Freecycle, and Airbnb, then ECrent will be right up your alley.
Renting is also great option for those who are looking to reduce their environmental footprint. By choosing to rent, you’ll be contributing to many of the Sustainable Development Goals outlined by the United Nations to transform the world by 2030. Not only do you help your bottom line, you’re helping the environment, too.
A Growing Trend
The rental lifestyle, part of the larger sharing economy, is already catching on among Millennials and others who want to minimize environmental impact and move around to new places without being weighed down by their possessions. The trend is most prevalent in the housing market, with rentals accounting for nearly all of the net new households in the U.S. established between 2010 and 2016 according to the Urban Institute.
Amazon makes it easier than ever to buy something, but ECrent brings much of that same convenience to the rental platform. An app is available on Apple’s App Store and Google Play . With just a few clicks, you can find the perfect gift for anyone on your holiday shopping list.
And, ECrent offers products that Amazon does not like cars and homes. These are two great examples where renting provides a distinct advantage over buying and allows consumers to completely rethink the way their relationship to goods and services. With ECrent, users from more than 180 countries can post items for rent online, in addition to creating their own online rental stores. By utilizing the sharing economy that’s become popular thanks to companies Uber and Upwork, ECrent provides the opportunity to reduce individual consumption while making money.
The sharing economy will only continue to grow as more and more people work remotely and have the flexibility to work and live wherever they’d like for any period of time. About 30 percent of the workforce is full-time remote workers, an increase of seven percent since 2012. The number of digital nomads in the world is only going to grow in the coming years.
ECrent is the perfect solution for people who are looking to spend time in a new area. Users can find a place to stay, rent a car to get around and rent furniture and other items for their place from one convenient source. At the end of the stay, it can all be returned and the process can start all over again in the next location.
As part of the sharing economy, ECrent helps connect renters with other like-minded individuals to ensure smooth interactions throughout the rental process. Unlike Amazon, which has thousands of workers packing boxes in massive warehouses, ECrent allows users to know exactly where their items are coming from and establish personal connections in the rental market.
Renters can save money by renting instead of buying, lessening the impact of consumption. Renters who eventually purchase rented items are able to try before buying. Using ECrent, consumers can help battle the problem of overconsumption plaguing the world.
One of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals calls for sustainable consumption and production. This goal entails creating jobs and prosperity without straining natural resources. The rental market is a key player in achieving this goal.
The fewer possessions people own, the less of an environmental footprint they will have. It will also mean that fewer natural resources are being used to produce those items, which ties into UN SDGs like sustainable industrialization and sustainable cities and communities.
Many goods purchased from traditional retailers and even sites like Amazon have shelf lives far longer than consumers have a taste for them, and end up in landfills once someone is done with them. By using ECrent, you can use items for only as long as you need them, then pass them along to someone else.
