Why buy when you can borrow – it’s better for you and for the planet too. That’s the idea behind our project the Share Shed, reopening soon and celebrating it’s 4th Birthday today!

The Share Shed is a mobile library of things, which offers over 350 useful items for people to borrow at a low cost, helping many people share more and consume less. The initiative, run by the Network of Wellbeing, is excited to announce it’s reopening, and also to celebrate the 4th Birthday of the project!


Share Shed Birthday Celebrations

The above video is a song written and performed by the Share Shed’s very own Mark Jefferys, and shows some highlights from the Share Shed over the past four years.

Mark also went onto The Full Totnes Breakfast Show this morning to talk about the Share Shed’s Birthday and to share his wonderful song! You can listen here.

Reopening Plans

Following the government’s guidelines, the Share Shed will be able to reopen on 15th April with its mobile version, which currently serves, weekly, Totnes, Buckfastleigh, Ashburton and South Brent.

Among its most popular items, you can find carpet cleaners, strimmers, pressure washers, tents, lawnmowers, projector, sewing machine, power drills and many more.

Mirella Ferraz, Share Shed Coordinator, says: “We’re excited that we’ll be able to continue supporting a more sustainable and collaborative lifestyle, especially during a time of so many challenges.”
