Buy Nothing, Earn Everything

Share This Post

The Buy Nothing Project was conceived by Rebecca Rockefeller and Liesl Clark as a means to reduce waste. The project runs via localized Facebook groups, where community members can list things they wish to donate, lend or share with others. In return, they request an item they’d like to receive.
By creating a ‘gift economy’, not only is fast consumerism—which leads to long-term waste—slowed, it also fosters a deeper sense of community. Furthermore, giving away or swapping reduces the amount of clutter in our lives.
If you’re interested in participating in the initiative and reducing the amount of stuff you (and no doubt all of us!) have accumulated over the years, visit their webpage, or type in ‘Buy Nothing’ followed by your location on Facebook to see relevant groups.
Ultimately, “buy nothing” is really just a mind set. Even without physically joining a group, you can make a commitment to yourself to reduce the amount of buying and accumulating you do. Not only is this healthy, it makes more room for the things you truly love. Donate, lend or share, it’s as easy as 1 2 3 !
