BuyNothing App

Official app of the Buy Nothing Project. 

A Gift Economy's real wealth is the people involved and the web of connections that form to support them. Welcome! Have fun and get to know the real life neighbors in your community.

BuyNothing helps you give away things others could use and ask for things within your hyper local community.

All for free, no strings.

Buy nothing. Give freely. Share creatively.
