Working Towards Zero

United By Vision

Every great idea is born from the necessity of solving a problem or fulfilling a need, and Ruckify is no exception. Ruckify’s Cofounder Steve Cody started a conversation with his new neighbor and now CEO Bruce Linton as they were looking to clean up some fallen trees. With no chainsaw, Steve was frustrated by the idea that the only way he could get the job done on his own was to buy a brand new one. He only needed the chainsaw for a few hours, why did he have to cause a new one to be manufactured?!
This was the Cofounders’ “aha moment.” They envisioned a marketplace app that would allow people to share assets on a short-term basis, reducing carbon emissions and landfill, and Ruckify was born.
Founded in Ottawa, Canada in 2017 with a pile of fallen trees and a dream to change the world, Ruckify has become the world’s #1 buy nothing, rent anything marketplace. This inspiration gave rise to industry-changing technology and attracted the participation of forward-thinking leaders, and now Ruckify has paved the way for a growing peer-to-peer sharing community that stretches around the world.
Ruckify is an environmentally responsible organization, based on Steve and Bruce’s environmental strategy of preventing the production of new items. Ruckify focuses on the positive environmental impacts of the circular economy, specifically how that relates directly to reducing climate change.

A Circular Economy is based on the principles of designing out waste and pollution, keeping products in use, and regenerating natural systems.

"We are passionate about giving everyone the opportunity to rent anything they can think of, and to start their own rental businesses while helping the environment. Ruckifying instead of buying helps lower our carbon footprint, and in the four years since we started, we’re seeing how the sharing economy can have a profound, positive impact on our planet and communities."
