Conscious consumerism is not just a trend among millenials. Numerous platforms where people share their stuff with others instead of buying, have been popping up in the past years. Sharing and swapping stuff that’s only rarely used
has become an increasingly popular trend.
For the iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD topic "What iF sharing is the new buying" we asked for a business model, design solution or communication strategy that serves a sharing service, no matter if it is a young start-up or already. The awarded concepts of the students below covers such aspects as the sharing of air polution warnings, reusable packaging for the growing number of online purchases to an app that helps to connect neighbours to help each other out. The jury was impressed by the future-driven and socially well-thought-out concepts!
Check out below all prize money winners of the first round.

In this way, the users of this app could know the air quality of each place and choose to avoid the area with poor air quality - or they could wear a mask to prevent it.
