The sharing economy is a rapidly growing and disruptive force within the retail sector with global revenues predicted to be well over $300 billion by 2025. That’s not surprising when you consider 76 percent of Americans think sharing saves money, 72 percent think sharing builds relationships, and 64 percent think sharing lowers environmental impact. So how can you, as a consumer and community member, start sharing instead of buying? Learn about the Sharing Tribes app and related research by UA Retailing & Consumer Sciences Professor Anita Bhappu.
