Start a Group

Want a Buy Nothing group in your own neighborhood?

The Buy Nothing Project is made up of a worldwide network of hyper-local gift economies. Official groups are set up on Facebook using our copyright protected documents, artwork and images so that every branch of our network operates under the same Mission and guiding Principles. Please do not set these groups up yourself.

Every volunteer in the Buy Nothing Project is similarly connected. We all commit to uphold, through example and explanation, the Mission of the Buy Nothing Project, and to collaborate with other admins within the network to strengthen our communities and the Buy Nothing Project as a whole.

This commitment includes:

Buy Nothing: Give Freely. Share creatively. Post anything you’d like to give away, lend, or share among neighbors. Ask for anything you’d like to receive for free or borrow. Keep it legal. Keep it civil. 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.

Join one group only, the group where you live so you can literally “give where you live.” This is what builds community.

Find out more about the responsibilities of being a Buy Nothing Project Admin here.

Every Buy Nothing Project Admin lives in the hyper-local area where their group is located.

Here’s how we can set up your new group for you:

  1. Let us know that you would like to steward a group for your community by filling out the form at the bottom of this page. We will be in touch with you to discuss the geographical area for your group, and then we’ll set it up for you. Since you know your region better than we do, think about what area makes sense as a single group. You’ll want an area large enough to gather members, but not so geographically large that it will be difficult for members to connect in person.
  2. Each group will need one or two volunteers. As you collaborate with a Buy Nothing Project Development admin, consider asking a neighbor to join you in this endeavor. All of our admins must have a Facebook account. If you do not have one, you’ll need to create one in order to get started. Once we have your group set up, we will invite you to join, and then promote you to “Admin” status. We will introduce you to your Regional Admin, and we will invite you to join our Buy Nothing Project Admin groups, where our admins communicate, collaborate and contribute to the Project as a whole.
  3. Once the group is set up and we have introduced you to the rest of the Admin team, we will add your group to the Find-A-Group page, and  you will start getting requests to join! We encourage you to invite your neighbors, and talk about the Buy Nothing Project wherever you go!

That’s it!  After that, you just start posting!  We encourage all of our admins to set an example by posting offers and requests, as well as informative posts and helpful tips.   You will find examples to get you started in our Admin groups.

Once you send us a request to start a new group, give us a few days to respond to you and then be sure to check your email “spam” folder, as well as your Facebook “message requests” and “filtered” folder in case we reach out to you via Facebook.

Filtered (Other):https://www.facebook.com/messages/other
Message Requests:https://www.facebook.com/messages/pending

Keep in mind that this project is made up entirely of  volunteers,  many with families and jobs, and there has recently been a huge influx of new-group requests. Thanks in advance for your patience!

I have moved back to Maui and would like to start/admin a group where I live on the South Side. I feel this will work perfectly here.

      Yes groups have been formed to cover an entire county, but it is very rare, and something we strive to avoid as we are working towards creating hyper-local gift economies, and an entire county is typically not hyper local. The Development Admin who would reply to your inquiry will work with you to best determine the area to cover for a new group for your location.

  27. I love the pay forward idea

  28. I would like to start a Buy Nothing group for Harlem, NY. There is already a large community of people sharing, bartering, and passing along free items, especially furniture and childrens’ items, but the offerings are scattered among a a half dozen general neighborhood groups. I think it would be wonderful to have a single resource for the community. Thank you!

    • Hi Sarah,

      If there isn’t a Buy Nothing group yet in your community (check this list which is updated frequently https://buynothingproject.org/find-a-group/ ), we’d love to see a gift economy started where you are. We just need a local volunteer to join us as admin (our entire network is run by volunteers).

      If you’re interested in becoming an Admin, please fill out the form you will find on the page in the following link. Once you have done so, the Development Admin for your area will contact you. Please have patience, this process is done in our volunteers’ free time, as such a reply may take some time, but I assure you they will respond. Currently there is a backlog of several weeks, due to the huge increase in interest; our Development Team is working diligently through the requests for new groups as quickly as they are able.

  29. If I started a group in my area, what exactly are my responsibilities for keeping it going on Facebook? I want to be sure it will not be a large and time consuming commitment… thank you…

    • Hi Janice,

      Thanks for considering having us start a group for your area, and becoming an Admin for that group. It is wise for you to learn a bit about the role before taking it on. This page is a good starting point to learn about the responsibilities of an Admin for Buy Nothing.

      If you still find yourself unsure if you can commit enough time, perhaps you can find a neighbor to help Co-Admin alongside you. Having a Co-Admin team is advisable, because sometimes a solo Admin needs to take time away, and that leaves the group with no one Admining it.

  30. It is a fantastic job as social responsibility .I would like to start up a Group in Bangladesh.

  34. I filled out the form but don’t know what my FB URL number is. How do I find it?

    • Hi Connie,

      Thanks for offering your time to the Buy Nothing Project as an Admin for a local group. It is not important to share your Facebook URL. In time a Development Admin will contact you by email.
