It's an exciting time in America right now.
Our consumption patterns are changing, and collaborative consumption—a system based on sharing, bartering, trading, renting, and swapping—is forging an economy that’s not only good for the pocketbook, but also benefits the environment and supports social ties.
On November 8, 2013 in New York City, New Dream and Etsy hosted noted authors, scholars, and environmental thought leaders Gus Speth and Juliet Schor for an evening of conversation in front of a live audience.
