Want to Become a Buy Nothing Community Builder?
We'll help you through the process!
Community Builders volunteer to teach neighbors how to Buy Nothing by modeling Giving, Asking, and Gratitude through posts, comments, raves, and likes. Community Builders receive access to a special tool to speak directly to their community with specially marked helpful "Tip" posts that encourage, explain, and inspire. Community Builders receive a special BuyNothing badge in recognition for exemplary leadership and community building skills.
