Post your Gives, Asks & Gratitude Globally

Now you can post your Gives, Asks, and Gratitude to the entire BN community around the world. The little globe signifier will let everyone know your post is Global. We're very excited to see how you put this feature to creative use. Here are some situations where we think a Global post could be rewarding:

  • You've had a great BN experience and want to share your Gratitude with the world.
  • You're searching for something very specific, and want to cast the widest net possible with your Ask.
  • You have a Give that would be easy to ship around the world and you'd like to make a connection beyond your community.
  • Your Ask or Give isn't successful within your 20 mile radius and now you just want to Go Big!
Use this feature to create a global circular gift economy by sharing and connecting with the worldwide BN community.

Flag your posts as Let it Simmer or Flash Give. You'll find this option every time you open a new Give post using the Share "+" button in the center of the taskbar across the bottom of your screen.
Save Multiple Locations
Save up to 5 locations to make it that much easier to BuyNothing everywhere you go. Home, work, school, family, vacation - Now you can save a handful of BuyNothing communities to make it fast to connect whenever you're present in each one. You'll find this feature at the very top of your BN home page screen.
