Saving the Planet through renting

I'm not an extremist.  I don't talk to my plants.  I still drive a big SUV, because I have 5 kids.  I like shooting guns and am known to go for the 30oz. steaks when they're on the menu.  But I also really appreciate the beauty of this earth and frankly would love to see that beauty preserved for my progeny over the generations to come.  If we're being realistic, it doesn't work for the average American to convert to a vegetarian tree-hugging environmentalist mentality.  But I don't think we give enough credit to their individual global awareness competency.  I think the average American does care about global warming, about recycling, and about planting trees, however, they want to address those issues in a practical way.  I don't know anyone that wants to get worse gas mileage on a vehicle, we just don't want to give up the powerful engines, because experiencing the G force of a hard acceleration is one of life's sweet pleasures.  So the object then must not be to convert everybody over to extremist perspectives but to help businesses identify pathways that can offer the gas-sipping, supercharged engines.  Kudos to Tesla on that front- creating a car that does 0-60 in 2.28 seconds... makes me smile just thinking about it.  :)

Rent Duck is Gaining Steam

Rent Duck is gaining steam.  Users are starting to come in more consistently and we're starting to see several small businesses getting their inventory onto our site.   We're realizing a lot of people aren't familiar with how the system works and it's tough to get people to learn it until inventory has been added that they're interested in renting.  By partnering with a lot of businesses, that trend is about to reverse.  If you've signed up for rent duck, but haven't been back for a while, we encourage you to visit the app or site and let us know something you're interested in renting by posting in the want section.  We're actively seeking people to fulfill those want requests, so try and see if you can stump us with something you really want to rent!
