Social Bartering with Favabank...

Favabank Community Bartering Favabank is modernising the age old idea of barter, exchanging items and time as favours between members of your community. Connect with people in your neighbourhood via the exchange of favours.

Bartering Favours Next time you need a helping hand or need to borrow something, why not try to source it from your local community?

Barter and Recycle Your Unwanted Stuff All barter exchanges are tracked using a virtual currency called a 'Fava', to create a 'gift economy' where the more you have given, the more likely that people will want to reciprocate. The Fava is the foundation for 'pay it forward' economics.

Listings and Future Versions of Favabank:

Our initial aim is to build a community based around the idea of 'neighbour-to-neighbour' favour exchanges. If user activity reaches sufficient levels we hope to involve organisations and business in the exchange of Favas. For example, a community organisation might want to offer Favas to help attract volunteers to a project, or a business might want to accept Favas as part payment towards their goods and services. If this step is taken in the future, this directory will be used as a resource for users to find further opportunities to get involved with their community or to redeem their Favas.
