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. Hi Julie: If you’re interested in starting a group in your community, be sure to fill out our form on our “Start A Group” page, join a training session and you’ll be starting the process!

  7. […] The Buy Nothing Project is a “hyper-local gift economy’, where people give away things they don’t need any more on Facebook Groups. This was a HUGE way for us to pick up FREE baby clothes, toys, gear, anything you can think of. It’s a fantastic resource that makes it simple to ask for something you need, or give away what you don’t need. You can find a local group HERE. […]

  10. […] When you have gone through and feel satisfied with how your cabinets and drawers look, it’s time to find homes for your unwanted items. For things like that lonely tupperware lid, check for a recycle symbol and dispose of it properly. For everything else, you have a couple of options. This might sound silly, but my #1 way of getting rid of stuff is posting on Facebook asking where I can take things. Your friends have a vast array of knowledge of local programs or services that could use your kitchen supplies. For example, food pantries may need tupperware for giving out meals. A friend who volunteers there might know that. Your unwanted mismatched plates and bowls will work perfectly for your friend’s first apartment. A lot of my first apartment supplies came from my mom’s friends getting rid of stuff. College kids aren’t picky, and they love free stuff. I’m also part of a Facebook group for my neighborhood where people post their unwanted items and arrange for pickup with people in the neighborhood. I used that group to find a new home for my mattress, give away some random plastic cutlery that was in my house, and find homes for a lot of things I decided I didn’t need during the moving process. Check out the Buy Nothing Project’s website here to find a group near you! […]

  36. Hi Scott,
    We’re actually in the process of creating group boundary maps for all of our groups around the globe. This is, of course, a large undertaking for our volunteers, so they’re not quite ready yet. Is this screenshot helpful at all? If not, any of the Local Admins of those groups could surely assist you with getting into the correct group for your location.

  37. Hi Jill,
    Thanks for pointing this out. I went to correct the link and do not see a San Clemente South group on our map, however. I did spot-check some other group links in this region, and they all seem to go to their correct Facebook group URLs.
