In the past few years there has been a significant change in the mindset of people in terms of their money management. Concepts such as collaborative consumption and sharing economy have begun to play a significant role in daily conversations where people are realizing the importance of sharing rather than possessing. With this shift in mentality, movements such as the Global Sharing Day are rising, underlining even more the importance to evolve towards this new kind of economy.
The recession has led consumers to change their habits leading them to value what they have, cut down their wants and focus on their needs. With the boom of the sharing economy, several companies have appeared helping citizens share what they have which leads to developing a community of people from all over the world with the same mentality.

There are 10 million people all over the world who have joined the sharing movement and this number is expected to grow exponentially in the upcoming years as more people realize the exclusive advantages this movement has to offer.
