Sorry, but as of November 2015 TuShare has closed.

Thank you so much to all our members — your generosity and sense of community was inspiring and we're sad that we couldn’t continue TuShare for you. If you'd like to know more about the reasons we had to close, please read this letter.

Although TuShare is no more, we still believe in the power of sharing to affect positive environmental and community change. If like us, you want to continue sharing we highly recommend Planet Ark’s list of resources and projects devoted to it.

TuShare has now shut down.

Dear TuSharers,

When we started TuShare in 2012, we had a bold vision to help all items see their full lifespan.

We knew that there were over 100 billion items that were sold, brand new, every year and only 5% of them found their way into another set of hands. That’s 95 billion things every year that could find a new home.

With you, we built a community of almost 50,000 people in a few short years. We shared over 40,000 kilos of useful things from landfill, and we made good friends whilst we were at it.

Despite our best efforts, we couldn’t build TuShare into a sustainable business. So, after thinking long and hard about it, we are making the difficult decision to close TuShare down. We have covered this more detail here.

We’d like to thank you for your generosity, gratitude and community spirit.

All our best, The TuShare team
