Buy Nothing [insert group name] is not currently accepting new members because the membership has reached full capacity. If you’d like to join the Buy Nothing movement immediately, you can download our free app www.buynothingproject.org
At this time, our Buy Nothing group has reached maximum capacity. If you live here, we’d love to have you join us when membership is open again. We hope you’ll consider joining or starting a sibling group, and also connect with your neighbors via the free BuyNothing app. [If there is a sibling group, add this sentence:
Our sibling group is open to new members, please visit them here ADD LINK HERE
] In this group there is no buying or selling, no trades or bartering, no soliciting for cash. We’re an adult-only, hyper-local gift economy. We are not a charity or community bulletin board.
Buy Nothing. Give Freely. Share creatively. Follow the Buy Nothing Project on FB, IG & Twitter to keep up with BN news and stories.
We offer members a way to give and receive, share, lend, and express gratitude through a worldwide network of local gift economies in which the true wealth is the web of connections formed between people who are real-life neighbors. Post anything you’d like to give away, lend, or share in this Buy Nothing community group. Ask for anything you’d like to receive for free or borrow. Abide by the Community Agreement. Keep it legal.
