  • Pros: 

    Easy to use website.

    Potential to save and make money.

    Helps you meet people in your area.

    Can get items quickly.

    Saving the environment!

    Cons: 

    Not able to add a listing seeking items to rent - yet.

    Not enough people using it - yet.

    I always thought this kind of website is needed in today's society; a way to save and make money by working together with our neighbors and in turn reducing the strain on the world's resources by re-using and up-cycling items rather than buying items new.

    I have used the website and I'm happy with the layout and usability. Eventually I'd like to the see the site become more interactive; imploring users to list more items, providing statistics on how much you've made/saved.

    All in all, I highly recommend this site, it's a great idea with a brilliant intention.

    Gerald Bishop has used this product for one year.

Rent out your stuff, hire things from others, trade and private. Buy less, waste less, share more. Reducing demand on the world's resources. A marketplace for rental / hire items , an eBay / Air BNB mixup !

Explain to us more about the name. What's the story behind the "echo" name?

@dotmanish Hi, the idea behind the name is "A user sends an item out into the world, which then returns, ready to be sent out again". Just like an echo.
