The car2go blog is back online – clearly organized, varied and international. The upgrade work is finished and recent months have seen a great deal of hard work and dedication in all locations. Much has changed, but readers will also find many things familiar.
The weekend is coming up soon, so time to make some plans. There are various ways to fill your weekend. Whether it is a city-trip, helping friends with their move or decorating your apartment, car2go is always there by your side. Also, our little helpers have more storage capacity than you might think!
There are millions of books spread over the world – in hundreds of different languages, on any topics. Even though they differ by subject area and language, books mostly have one thing in common: They will be read once; afterwards they gather dust on the bookshelf. Today, we will show you how you can give seldom read books an exciting life again. The secret is:book sharing!
Everyone knows the problem: A wardrobe full of clothes but nothing to wear! Either outgrown clothes, you don’t like the look of anymore, or you even can’t really remember, why you have bought this piece of clothing. Are your clothes far too good to throw away, but your budget is too low for new purchases? At this point the sharing idea may begin, which is the reason why we focus this time on the sharing of clothes.
It’s Friday and the weekend is around the corner. You would like to indulge in some art, but you can’t stand a museum? How about some street art? That’s almost like a museum, but for free and outside. For some “Local Flavor” we have sorted through our images and collected pictures that our members have taken. Here our best of:
Some topics on our blog examine things you can share – apart from cars. This time we will talk about job sharing. For many people working is not the most important purpose in life anymore. They are dreaming about having more time to live and about working less. But what does job sharing mean exactly and how does it work out in practice?
The idea of sharing is not a new one and can be transferred – both commercially as non-commercially – to many different areas: housing, tools, kitchen utensils and even food. Why should something go rot in the cupboard or supermarket shelf, if someone else could really use it.
Sharing makes you happy – there might be no better explanation for the hype concerning the Sharing Economy. This time we will take a closer look at what role flats and accommodations play in this context. Are there really more favorable rooms and overnight accommodations due to the Sharing Economy?
It is almost time to start into the weekend and swapping the office noises for some nice beats. But before you take off to your favourite clubs, we want to send you into the weekend with some snapshots that spotted unique scenes. Incredible, what you can experience when you are driving around.
car2go isn’t just available in Germany, but in seven other countries as well. But what do people in Canada and the USA actually use car2go for? Do people in North America have different needs to those in Europe? We wanted to find out the answer to this question, so we asked around our American colleagues. This time, you’ll meet Richard, and yes, you’re right: he’s more of a city guy than country bumpkin.
Almost 8,000 kilometers away, our American colleagues are snatching up car2go members now and then to get their stories. Never mind globalization – somehow, things are rather different over there. In our blog, we’ll introduce a few of these car2go members to you. This time, it’s Andrew from Seattle’s turn – 1.95 meters tall and weighing 177 kilos. How could this bear of a man and our white and blue bubble car ever be friends?
