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”, Facebook will present you with 3 questions to answer. Please answer all three questions so that an admin can approve your request.
If you are unable to view these questions, or you have any other questions or concerns, feel free to send a message to the volunteer named in the Group Description to verify your eligibility to join the group.

Remember: 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. Please request to join only one group. If it is the wrong one for your location, an admin will assist you in finding the right group.

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.

  1. I live in Boise Idaho. Can you tell me the responsibilities for an admin? If I can pull it off, I’d love to start one in our area!

  2. I would love to start a group in the tricities (Port Moody, Port Coquitlam, and Coquitlam) in British Columbia. Would that be possible? They are 3 different cities but they are all clumped closely together and even share their newspapers (Tricity News). If not, I’d like to start one in Port Coquitlam where I live. Thanks!

  3. I am looking for a group for Chehalis , WA. The closest group is Olympia. So do I join there then.

  4. Hi I would love to start a group for Langley B.C. My husband and I are trying to do a year of buying nothing other than food and diapers and would love to admin a facebook group for Langley.

  5. I’m interested in starting a group in Vista, CA. Or joining if one already exists.

  6. interested in setting one up for south Tacoma area. i will gladly do admin.

  7. Is there any interest in making one in New Zealand? I am based in Auckland, one of the major cities and happy to start a group!

  8. What is the browser for buy nothing Redmond (Washington)

  9. Hi Nanaette, here is the URL for you to use to join the Buy Nothing Redmond community : https://www.facebook.com/groups/1427343087489010/
    Thanks so much for joining our social experiment!

  10. Hi! I moved to Fall City, WA. recently and I can’t locate a group for Fall City/Preston. Is there one? Thanks in advance!
    Maile

  11. Hi Maile, our Buy Nothing Preston/Fall City group is just getting started, here is the link to the group that you’ll probably need to copy & paste into your browser, then click on ‘join group’ https://www.facebook.com/groups/787551607931946/ thanks for your interest in joining our social experiment!

  12. 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!

  13. 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)

  14. 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!

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

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. Hi Anita … the Find A group list was just updated, however, there is not yet a group in Quebec. Please do check back again though, as more groups are being added to the Buy Nothing network each week. Thanks for your interest in joining our social movement. https://buynothingproject.org/find-a-group/

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

  20. 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!

  21. 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!

  22. Nothing in Denver, Colorado yet?

  23. 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.
