“Buy Nothing: Give Freely. Share the bounty. Post anything you'd like to give away,
lend, or share among neighbors. Ask for anything you'd like to receive for free or
borrow. Keep it legal. Keep it civil. No buying or selling, no trades or bartering,
we're a gift economy.
We'd love to have you join us! We have over 3,000 groups around the world; if you
don't have one in your town, we'll help you start one; just ask us how - It's free and easy.
This page is the general headquarters of the Buy Nothing Project network, where we
link interesting gift and sharing economy news from the internet, and inspiring
posts from the many BNProject groups around the world.. The actual gift economy
action is hyper-local -- that is, it happens within much smaller,
geographically defined communities.”
Lafayette, Orinda and Moraga are definitely on the conservation bandwagon. Each community has an active ‘buy nothing’ community, to be found on Facebook, where you can give a little and get a little by piping up (and picking up, typically from the giver’s porch).
