Meet the Craigslist of borrowing: NeighborGoods

NeighborGoods founder, Micki Krimmel, was stuck before a trip to Thailand without a proper backpack and ended up spending more than $250 when she could not find any friends to borrow one from.  This dilemma was the inspiration for her new company, Neighborgoods, which will charge a small fee ($4.99) to verify accounts in order to cover expenses.

Members can list backpacks, powertools, exercise and recreation equipment, and pretty much anything else you can think of.  The site was established two years ago in the Los Angeles and went nationwide last summer.  A redesigned website is expected to be released this spring.  More details can be found in Jonathan Hiskes's article at SustainableIndustries.com.
