New Swapping Community. Engage, Recycle, Exchange!

Have you ever felt like you didn't have enough money? And even if you had a bit more it still seemed it was not enough?

Nowadays what we do for a living or what we are allowed to experience seems to be measured by money. Lately, however, we are shifting. We are becoming more aware of what is important and we are connecting with others increasingly. People started changing (or maybe just going back) to a different approach to life. We realised money is not everything and websites where is possible to share your house or give away all that you don't need started to become popular. Of course the system we live in is based on money so we need it to survive, but maybe we should give it less power than it has now.

We thought how beautiful it is when among our circle of friends and family we can share things and skills. We thought it would be amazing to bring this concept on a larger scale. Exchanging things allows us not just to save money but also to reduce waste and over consumption.

Think what happens if you need to fix your PC. Probably if your brother is good with IT stuff you would ask for his help. In return, maybe you could bake that cake he really likes. No money involved, but surely a stronger connection and a great experience can come from it. We believe that recreating this concept among members of a bigger community is not just possible, but it strengthens a phenomenon that is already happening. The Wheel Project has been designed to bring people together and as a tool to engage and exchange either stuff or skills. You can do it online and meet new people or you can just pass by the shop with something to exchange and see what's there for you.
