Can we live a “fully rented life” in today’s sharing economy? Is it more environmentally, economically and emotionally empowering to live a life where our clothes, homes, cars, music, entertainment, bikes, and more are rented? Can we simplify our daily lives while being more selective about what we choose to own? Two industry leaders, Rent the Runway and West Elm, explore how to influence consumer behavior and shape the future of what it means to participate in today’s sharing economy.
