Find a Group

logo-square-lg

We are thrilled for you to join us in this amazing experiment. Just find your community in the list below, and click. The embedded link will take you directly to Facebook, where you can request to join your local group by clicking on ‘Join Group’.

Once you have selected “Join Group”, check the group description for the name of the local volunteer who can help you.
Send a message to that volunteer to verify your eligibility to join the group.

You can join only one Buy Nothing Project group, the group where you live so you can literally “give where you live.” This is what builds community.

If there’s no Buy Nothing group in your home community and you’re willing to be a local admin for the group, click here to learn how to start your own Buy Nothing Project group.

      • Hi there! We’re moving to Queen Creek/San Tan Valley, AZ in two weeks. I would LOVE to start the first Arizona BNP group! I think to make it work, the two communities would have to be combined; even though they really are separate, STV is often called QC. It’s all considered one.

    • Hi ! if you are moving / changing your residence, you can do the same with your local Buy Nothing community group. Simply click on the ‘cog’ drop down menu (just under the banner picture, on the right) and select ‘leave group’ for the one you will be moving from, and then use this list to find the community group for your new neighborhood, copy/paste the link to your internet browser and select ‘request to join’ 🙂 hope this ‘facebook-speak’ short how-to helps to guide you! https://buynothingproject.org/find-a-group/

  35. I would love to start a group in the tricities (Port Moody, Port Coquitlam, and Coquitlam) in British Columbia. Would that be possible?

  43. Hello, looking to have a group set up for North Grenville, Ontario, Canada, a municipality consisting of several small towns surrounding a bigger one called Kemptvillle. I run a swap sell site (4000+ members) for the area but would love a Buy Nothing one as well. I’ll admin it. Let me know what I need to do!

    Shannon Barlow

  44. Any plans to migrate this away from Facebook? I want to buy nothing, and meet people, but I will not use Facebook. It would seem that it is a fine line between meeting people (via facebook) and avoiding supporting purchases (ads on facebook)

    • Hi Phill, People often ask us why we chose Facebook as our platform for The Buy Nothing Project. 1) It’s free; 2) Most of our friends and neighbors are on Facebook; and 3) It’s transparent. Transparency is the key ingredient to keeping a gift economy sustainable over time. Though there are some limitations to Facebook, the BNP is a network of groups completely run by Volunteers, without a budget (or time) to put the effort required into developing and maintaining a stand-alone site at this time. Thanks for your interest in the Project!

  45. I’m looking for a group in Orlando, Fl

    • Hi Elizabeth ! Currently there isn’t a Buy Nothing group in the Orlando area. If you’re interested in setting one up for your community, let us know ! Thanks for your interest.

  46. Hi, are there any groups in Pierrefonds, Quebec? Or Montreal, Quebec? Sorry, I can’t set ne up or moderate one. But I would love to join a group.

  47. Hello, any groups in Bratislava, Slovakia and/or in Helsinki, Finland? 🙂

    • No Buy Nothing gift economy groups in Slovakia or Finland … yet 😉 Are you interested in starting one for your community? We’d love to hear from you if you’re interested!

      • Maybe….? Ha! Let me think about it 🙂 I don’t speak very well Finnish (yet), so I’d need to have it an English-speaking community in Finland. In Slovakia it’d be easier, but then I don’t live there all the time, just come for visits!

  48. Nothing in Denver, Colorado yet?

    • The Buy Nothing Project does not have a group in the Denver, CO area … yet 😉 If you’re interested in starting a group there for your local community area, let us know! We’d love to get one set up ! Thanks for your interest in our social movement.

  49. I am interested in a Haymarket, Gainesville VA group. Please let me know if there is one already.

    • Hi Michelle! The Buy Nothing Project does not have a group in the Gainsville/Haymarket area … yet 😉 If you’re interested in starting a group there for your local community area, let us know if you’re able to act as the Local Admin, and we’d be happy to set it up! Thanks for your interest in our social movement.
      ~ Shelley
