Join Buy Nothing

We are thrilled that you’re here! Joining your Buy Nothing Community is easier than ever. The most direct way to participate in this amazing experiment with us is to join the mapBuyNothing App. https://www.buynothingapp.com BuyNothing App Over the past 8 years, the Buy Nothing Project has grown to over 6,085 groups on the Facebook platform but we are ready to expand to another custom platform just for Buy Nothing participants. You may note that many Facebook groups are transitioning to the app and you’ll see them marked as such in our list of groups. JoinWaitlistButton If you are looking for a group hosted outside of our app, you can find your community in the list below, and click through to it. The embedded link will take you directly to a social media platform, such as Facebook. If using Facebook, you can request to join your local group by clicking on ‘Join Group’. Once you have clicked on “Join Group,” Facebook will present you with 3 questions to answer. Please answer all three questions so the group’s leader can approve your request. If you are unable to view these questions, or you have any other questions or concerns, send a message to the person named in the “About/Group Description” section of the group’s public Facebook landing page. The Buy Nothing Project asks you to join only one Buy Nothing Project group, the group where you live, so that you can literally “give where you live.” This builds resilient community connections that see people through all of life’s challenges. You can read the basic Buy Nothing Project rules here before joining so you’ll be ready to participate right away. Some groups may have added to or changed the basic rules to better serve their communities, so be sure to check this out when you’ve been welcomed into your local Buy Nothing Project group. Please know that our BuyNothing app is here for everyone to join, so you do not need Facebook or any other social media app to join.

  1. Please open tu ia group on Brasil! Um fim Curitiba/Paraná and i think is a wonderfull idea to us.

  2. I have been trying to find a group in my neighborhood. I live in Stone Oak, San Antonio.

  3. It’s time to check your links. The FB link for the lone Lubbock, TX group is dead, and one of the Amarillo, TX groups is also offline. I’m sure there are more.

  4. Hi Keith: The broken link means that the Buy Nothing group has been archived, due to inactivity and the lack of a local person able to admin the group. But please know that you can join and grow your local gift economy through our new upcoming Buy Nothing app which anyone can join by signing up for the waitlist for the app, which will launch this July, here: https://www.buynothingapp.com/

  5. I would like information on how to start a group for my town/area. Please email information on how to do this.
    Thanks

  6. Hi Julie: If you’re trying to start a Facebook Buy Nothing group, we have an optional online course called the Buy Nothing Academy that provides you with all the resources needed to steward a local gift economy. You then simply set up your group on Facebook! Facebook walks you through the steps to set up your group and we provide you with the resources that you can upload to your group via our Buy Nothing on Facebook page. You can find that page here: https://buynothingproject.org/buy-nothing-on-facebook/
    Please know that you can also join and grow your local gift economy through our new upcoming Buy Nothing app by signing up for the waitlist for the app, which will launch this July, here: https://www.buynothingapp.com/

  7. Hi,
    I’m trying to join the New Jersey > Jersey City > Downtown group but can’t find it on FB. The link above leads to a page not found. Any assistance with this would be great!
    Cheers!

  8. Hi Niti: It looks like this group has been deleted by its admins, or is now set as a secret group as we’re unable to see the status of it. If you’re looking to participate in the Buy Nothing Project, you can always download our app which is due for global release in the upcoming months! https://www.buynothingapp.com/
