Forum – Buy Nothing Project: give, ask, gratitude

Sun, Feb 23, 2020 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

Fireside Room

The Buy Nothing Project was started by two women in Washington State in July 2013. Since then it has grown.

UCV member Mary Bennett is an administrator of the Buy Nothing Kitsilano group and has helped grow the group from 80 members to over 1000 in one year. There are almost 6000 members of the various Buy Nothing groups in Vancouver.

Mary was interviewed recently by City TV and has helped others get involved and get connected.


Mary will share some of the mission, vision, philosophy of the project; recent changes in their approach and personal stories of how it’s enhanced her connection with her Kitsilano neighbours.

She’ll answer your questions if you’d like to be involved in some way.
