Because owning cool stuff doesn’t have to cost the Earth…
This competition is now closed but you can see all our current competitions here
From Freecycle and Whip Car to Big Wardrobe and our favourite new sharing site The People Who Share, sharing is all the rage these days thanks to t’Internet. The fact is that people love to share. Whether it’s a car journey, sharing a bag of crisps or even our homes, 80% of us say that sharing makes us happy!
Here at Global Cool we love the sharing phenomena because we get to use loads of stuff on the cheap and can experience cool stuff safe in the knowledge that sharing = recycling and therefore we’re not not cacking all over the planet. Owning stuff is like soooo yesterday.
THIS COMPETITION HAS NOW CLOSED – THANKS FOR ALL THE ENTRIES AND WELL DONE TO CRAIG HARVEY, WHOSE ANSWER WAS CHOSEN AT RANDOM TO WIN THE PRIZE

Living green doesn’t have to mean growing dreadlocks and becoming an eco-warrior. At Global Cool we reckon a greener life is still a fun one. We’ve found four simple ways you can be greener without sacrificing the things you love. All our articles highlight one way (the one in bold below) to start being greener. Click on the links to find out more…
1. Be a winner, not a binner (aka recycling and reusing stuff)
2. Turn up the style, not the heat (aka using less energy at home)
3. Love the trend, not the spend (aka buying stuff that doesn’t harm the planet)
4. Do it in public (aka ditching the car and plane when you can)
