BubuSI is inspired by a cultural practice of the Kiribati Islands communities who share things as a social obligation.
We redefined such practice and brought it into other contexts to support human ecosystems in creating abundance through the sustainable sharing of things. Sustainable means things last longer and their use is optimised. Abundance means people enjoy access to what is available without needing to buy.
Technologically, BubuSI is a configuration of an Open source & Open (non-private) data traceability software, whose flexible architecture makes it easy to customize.
Kiribati Islands, 2006
Our first app Lot.bubusi.app is designed for CUSTODIANS
We recovered the concept of custodianship and introduced it in the scheme of sharing economy. Custodians are any entity in need of a platform to coordinate the sharing of products sustainably.
BubuSI offers them TRACEABILITY, including the finance, tracking, exchange, lease, maintenance and use of the shared items.
LoTs give us access to many kind of goods and services without needing to buy them. They help create a society where resources are abundant because they are shared and encourage the reuse and repair of products, which improves the social and economic efficiency of our communities.
We are facing a big problem: the undeniable waste of resources brought about by the current economic system.
Like many others, we are concerned about what is an undeniable massive worldwide problem: the excessive waste of resources. Each year, more than 2 billion tonnes of solid waste are created globally.
This situation is linked to a linear economy which prioritises constant growth in quantity to the detriment of quality. This creates unnesesary waste along with an inefficient use of resources.
An emerging alternative is a Circular economy which draws on reusing, remaking & recycling to help reduce production while increasing quality.
BubuSI works as an ecosystem that interwaves product, environment, technology, institutions and communities. It all starts with sharing, which increases product usage and lifespan; in turn, reducing the need for production. Environmentally, this should translate in a reduced footprint.
