One man’s trash is another man’s treasure

Tinder-style app enables users to trade unwanted items directly with other users

SUOP is the latest in a stream of platforms that facilitate recycling through sharing economies.

To begin, users create a profile and list items they want to get rid of. Next, they browse other users’ items via a Tinder-style deck and tap to like items they are interested in. When there is a match — where two users like each other items — SUOP notifies both users and prompts them to start a conversation.
