It’s easy! Join the BuyNothing app, set up your personal profile so your neighbors can “meet” you, take a few photos and start posting your Asks, Gives, and Gratitude.
Buy Nothing Project Rules are Simple: Post anything you’d like to give away, lend, or share amongst neighbors. Ask for anything you’d like to receive for free or borrow. Keep it legal. No hate speech. No buying or selling, no trades or bartering, we’re strictly a gift economy.
We provide free training
that empower people to get the most from their Buy Nothing experience. The fastest way to join Buy Nothing is via our independently-hosted free app available for Apple and Android users (and coming soon as a web app). You can also search through our directory
to see if there is a Buy Nothing group on another social media platform. Use our free tools to set up a non-commercial, non-monetized Buy Nothing Project community wherever you would like. Visit our Help Cente
r for more information.
If you’d like to take a deeper dive into the philosophy and the complete Buy Nothing lifestyle, in April, 2020, Simon & Schuster published co-founders’ Liesl and Rebecca’s first book, The Buy Nothing, Get Everything Plan
. This book is available at your local public library, and in many Buy Nothing groups. The book offers a blueprint for every person to build their own gift economy mindset, no social media required.
