What do slip’n slides, fondue pots and Yerdle have in common? They are all better with friends!
Yerdle is where you give new life to old stuff by swapping what you no longer need for items you do. Because all the items come from our members, there is more opportunity for swapping when more members contribute. The more we give, the more we get!
This is why we rely on the enthusiasm from members like you to help grow this vibrant sharing community. We recently took a poll of some of our most active sharing members, our Referdlers, and we discovered these are the top 3 favorite ways to spread the word.
