Buy Nothing New Month started on Saturday.
Congratulations on committing to LIVING more, shopping less.
You’re part of the global movement of people realising that our consumer choices have an impact on our people and planet, and that we have the power in our pocket to make that impact POSITIVE.
Buy Nothing New Month is about more freedom, more happiness, less stuff, less stress.
So this month, (with the exception of essentials like food, hygiene and medicine) all you do, is BUY NOTHING NEW!
PS: we’re not saying NEW is BAD.
We are encouraging a conscious, thoughtful approach to buying less, buying well made, buying stuff that’s built to last, rather than cheap, fast throwaway fashion, or stuff that’s headed for landfill.
You can source whatever you need second hand, so find the best op-shop in town, or get into online marketplaces for second hand stuff (eBay, Gumtree etc).
