That’s it! Did you Buy Nothing New?

Buy Nothing New Month 2013. Done.

We hope you enjoyed taking time to rethink how we buy, what and why.

We hope you loved a little more, shopped a little less for unnecessary stuff, maybe saved some dough, supported your local charity store, saw the value in existing stuff and had some ‘ah ha’ moments of your own.

We would love to hear about your experience of Buy Nothing New Month on our FB page

With loads of respect for what you’ve just done,

The Buy Nothing New Month Crew

PS: See you in October 2014

Have you been to pinterest and typed in ‘upcycled’ or even googled it?

Seriously. Creativity abounds.

What’s in your home or wardrobe you can remake into something else?

For you or someone else?

Refashion Co-op is a great resource site for ideas to refashion clothes 

Show us your up-cycled awesomeness on Facebook, Pinterest or instagram using the #BNNM
