Our gadgets will eventually break or get replaced. But it's hard to know just what to do with the gadgets that get left behind. Some people stuff them in junk drawers. Most people won't simply junk their car -- they'd trade it in. Why can't that same school of thought apply to electronics?

Renting stuff instead of buying them is a green, sustainable process. It reduces waste, save you money and you don't end up owning a lot of stuff that you may use rarely. Just as airlines are happy to sell you a one-way ticket, car rental companies also takes advantage of the fact that sometimes people only need to rent one-way to get from A to B.

About 1 billion people live on $1 a day or less and can't get a foothold on the economic ladder. Once they have the foothold, they can climb further themselves.
