Have you ever taken a look around at the amount of items that you purchased, only used a short period of time and then tossed them away? The future of our world belongs to the next generation, our children, so would you not want to find some way to keep these short-term used items out of landfills? You know that eventually that is where all of these baby clothes, toys, activity gear and such ultimately end up. As a Mom to three children, I know all too often how quickly clothes are outgrown, worn down and used up. Raising two fast-growing boys, I am seeing all too often a collection of shopping bags full of outgrown, usable clothing items!
Lendogram is a brilliant app for your iOS based smartphone where you can find friends who need the items your family has outgrown, and then borrow them. The problem with friends sharing outgrown items with friends is that we eventually forget who we lent something to. That baby activity center was lent to Sammy years ago, and then you find out that you are expecting another child and wonder, “where did that activity center end up?” Lendogram has a feature that allows you to borrow stuff from friends, keep track of who has what item and furthermore it has a feature to enable automatic reminders to your friends so that they will return the borrowed item in a timely fashion.
Being a parent of three children, I have lent things out to my friends and family only to completely forget where the old kid items or clothes ended up, I figure they are lost forever and not so important, but now that I see the app Lendogram is available for use; my hope of lending items and actually getting them returned has grown. This is an awesome app because you can use your social media following to lend to those you had no clue were in need of your no-longer-useable items. Search through friends and let them know, hey you have this item up for borrowing and then they can use Lendogram as a means to track the borrowing transaction!
The reason I love Lendogram is because it solves a few problems; the most important issue this awesome app solves is that it helps keep more items out of landfills and secondly it allows people to help people by lending items one may no longer have use for in this period of their life! I say you follow Lendogram on Twitter, Like Lendogram on Facebook, download the Lendogram app and let me know how it works out for you!
Cheers to people helping people while keeping our Earth a cleaner place!
