App of the week : Olio

Fight waste. Help your neighbors. Save our planet. Feel amazing !

On OLIO app, you’ll find millions of people giving away food & other household items to their neighbors, all for free. This app connects neighbors with each other and with local businesses so surplus food can be shared, not thrown away. This could be food nearing its sell-by date in local stores, spare home-grown vegetables, bread from your baker, or the groceries in your fridge when you go away. 

OLIO can also be used for non-food household items too.

The app is super easy to use : to make an item available, simply open the app, add a photo, description, and when and where the item is available for pick-up.

To access items, simply browse the listings available near you, request whatever takes your fancy and arrange a pick-up via private messaging.

The founders, Saasha Celestial-One and Tessa Clarke, believe that small actions can lead to big change : ’’Collectively – one rescued cupcake, carrot or bottle of lotion at a time – we can build a more sustainable future where our most precious resources are shared, not thrown away.’’
