How do I create a great ‘Giveaway’ listing? 💚

Tribu has a 21st-century business model which focuses on the social, economic and environmental aspects of society — world’s first within the collaborative consumption sector, which is focused on the bigger picture, enabling principles of a circular economy. 💚

A peer to peer platform focused on the following:

✅ Enabling members to share and giveaway things with each other.

✅ Making it easy to connect with a repair shop to get your things fixed.

✅ Give back to non-profit sustainable organisations through our operations.

Our core purpose is enabling our members to transition to a sustainable way of living by focusing on the below:

✅ Reduce unnecessary consumerism by making it easier to access underused items from each other.

✅ Maximise ‘reuse’ of items before they are discarded.

✅ Encouraging our marketplace members to giveaway their things to others on the platform.

Our goals are aspirational and we want to bring impact back into the sharing economy. We will continue to focus on the following:

✅ Build an engaged online community to make collaborative consumption easier to maximise the reuse of purchased items.

✅ Partner, promote and support organisations creating a sustainable New Zealand.

✅ Educate our members on conscious consumerism and the impact on the end of life for items.

We have listed a few tips to create an awesome ‘Sharing Listing’ to help you reduce that clutter at home.

Item Name

When choosing a name, try to choose something that will match what potential borrowers might search for.

Item Description

Describe the specifications and usage of your item as accurately as possible. A good description means less enquiry questions and you can giveaway the item faster. Be honest, clear and concise.

Select a Category

Select a relevant category for the item. If you can’t find what you are looking for, then select the closest category which suits your item.


Select your closest location, this should be the same as your location in your Dashboard Settings.

Delivery Options

Select either Pick Up/Drop Off or Delivery Available


Select either Excellent or Average for the listing.

Tribu Tip: If the item is in near new condition then its Excellent. If the item has been owned for more than one year and is fully functional then its Average.

Condition Summary

Describe the items condition so the Receiver knows what they are getting.

Safety Requirements

Describe any safety requirements for the Receiver.


Be creative and take some awesome snaps of your item.
