‘Buy Nothing’ – Newcastle movement

The Buy Nothing project is a global social movement happening in over thirty nations around the world, allowing its members to gift each other items for free via local Facebook groups. With its philosophy of buying nothing, giving freely, and sharing creatively, members post items they’d like to give away, lend, or share amongst neighbors. They can also ask for anything they’d like to receive for free or borrow. According to the Buy Nothing website, the rules are straightforward: “Keep it legal. Keep it civil. No buying or selling, no trades or bartering, we’re strictly a gift economy.”
