The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Miami Beach will also feature a "sharing room" in which residents will drop off items they no longer want like a purse or paddle board and another resident could exchange another "donation" or "shared item" to the "sharing room." All inventory is logged in a mobile app and donated to charities after 60 days.
“The Sharing Room will be set up like a small, curated shop, where goods will be displayed with like items so residents can browse easily,” Sarah Currie-Halpern said in a statement. Halpern is the founder/partner of Think Zero and former advisor to NYC Mayor’s Office of Sustainability, who worked with founding partner of Lionheart Capital Ricardo Dunin to dream up the concept for the Ritz-Carlton. “The Sharing Room has a threefold benefit: social, economic and environmental. I call it inspired sustainable consumption for luxury living,” Halpern said.
