      The sharing economy allows lightly used items to continue their life outside of a landfill. It also reduces the demand for new items. I feel better downsizing when I know the stuff is having a second life. I have stuff that works perfectly fine but I haven’t used it for over a year. I just can’t trash it and I have feelings about donating to places like Goodwill or Salvation Army.
