Who are THE NEW JONESES?

The New Joneses

As a Buy Nothing New Month challenger, you are THE NEW JONESES.

You know the phrase ‘keeping up with the joneses’? it’s a stupid, outdated lifestyle of ‘keeping up’ with the neighbours. Like when the new iPhone comes out. And you feel the need to upgrade your perfectly good, existing iPhone…

Where Buy Nothing New Month looks at the stuff we buy, THE NEW JONESES look at everything we do. Everything we do has an impact, so THE NEW JONESES show how to make better choices in order to have a positive impact.

Head over to THE NEW JONESES to learn about easy everyday lifestyle choices we can make (like our energy company, our choice of dunny paper, eliminating plastics, refusing to waste food, composting, walking more driving less etc) for the health and wellbeing of ourselves, our people and our planet.

Meet your new neighbours, The New Joneses

Have you heard of The New Joneses?

In their undies and bathrobes they came to Melbourne to show us how to make second hand second nature.

Two architecturally designed, sustainably built apartments were craned onto FedSquare, and The New Joneses came to live for a week.

In the spirit of ‘new consumption’ (which is conscientious and collaborative) The New Joneses were challenged to source everything they’d need (clothes, beds, linen, kitchenware, entertainment equipment etc) second hand.
