I thought OLIO was all about food sharing – why have you decided to allow non-food items?

We have decided to add a non-food section for two main reasons:

1) Because many of our early adopters hate food waste and, as such, don’t have much surplus food to share. However, they hate waste of all kinds and were starting to use OLIO to share non-food items. We therefore decided to create a separate section for this!

2) Because sharing of non-food items is likely to be much more appealing to the mainstream user. And if they use OLIO regularly for non-food, then when surplus food is available, OLIO will be top of mind.
