Buy Nothing – Get Everything…….. Transition Streets 6.4
The Buy Nothing Project is about setting the scarcity model of our cash economy aside in favour of creatively and collaboratively sharing the abundance around us.
Local groups form hyper-local gift economies that are parallel to local cash economies; Some people join to get rid of things that are cluttering their lives, or simply to save money by getting things for free, but they quickly discover this is not just another free recycling platform. A hyper-local gift economy’s real wealth is the people involved and the web of community connections that forms – new ways to give back to the community.
