“Buy Nothing. Give Freely. Share Creatively.” This is the motto of the Buy Nothing Project. It began when two friends, Rebecca Rockefeller and Liesl Clark, created an experimental hyper-local gift economy on Bainbridge Island, in Washington, in 2013. It has become a worldwide effort, growing to more than 280,000 members in 18 nations, with 1,300 groups and more than 1,700 volunteers.
