A Thingery – Vancity Member Perk

A Thingery is a community-owned lending library of things in a modified shipping container. Each Thingery provides local members with a way to reduce their ecological footprint. We do this by extending the life of equipment through soliciting donations, offsetting the need to purchase new equipment and collectively purchasing items.

Vancity is committed to supporting local businesses, organizations and non-profits that are helping communities find innovative solutions to consuming less. Thanks to support from Vancity’s Microfinance Program and its Community Investment Team, we have been able to establish three Thingery sites in Vancouver.
