The main aim of the project "Library of things" is to facilitate consumer movement from goods to services.

To reduce the amount of waste created and energy spent on producing and transporting goods, the society will be invited to overthink and change their consumption habits. Instead of buying brand new things, two alternative will be promoted - 1- rental services for things that are being used only few times in their lifecycle and 2-rental services of repaired, upcycled and second-hand things.

With the help of various activities non-governmental organisation Zero Waste Latvija will cooperate seek cooperation partners among companies in Latvia to begin the path towards second-hand goods normalisation, facilitation of rental services and explaining why buying new things is not a sustainable choice. To increase the capacity of the NGO, an employee will be hired to gain focus on relationship building and defining various forms of cooperation with companies, whose operations are aligned with the values of Zero Waste Latvija. During the project a code of ethics will be created to help evaluate potential cooperation partners sustainability.
