Introducing The Buy Nothing Project
An island community off the coast of Seattle launches a gift economy where people can offer freely what they have or ask for what they need. In less than a month, over 1000 members have given, borrowed, loaned, mended and shared thousands of items including garden produce, furniture, even kayaks and services, too. Watch these islanders give freely and build a resilient and trusting community.
A new social media movement on Bainbridge Island is turning heads by offering goods, services and the use of items for free. Check them out on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/BuyNothingBainbridge
