The Onion River Exchange is a 700-member time bank where members exchange goods and services instead of money. Exchanges are not reciprocal, meaning that one hour spent baking, cleaning, doing plumbing work or driving someone to the airport, can be exchanged for an hour of service provided by any other member of the time bank. In this video, we meet different members and learn about how they use the services of other members, and how they give back of their own time.
According to Wikipedia, time banks are active in 26 countries around the world, with over 275 in the US and almost as many in the UK.
