Buy Nothing. Give Freely. Share Creatively

Buy Nothing. Give Freely. Share Creatively

(Theme 7 – Waste)

Organization: Buy Nothing

Timeline for Completion: Started 2013 Ongoing

Objective:

Our Buy Nothing Project Mission: We offer people a way to give and receive, share, lend, and express gratitude through a worldwide network of hyper-local gift economies in which the true wealth is the web of connections formed between people who are real-life neighbors.

Join Us: 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.
There are over 50 Groups listed in the Ottawa/Gatineau area.
