Imagining an Economy Where You Don’t Have to Buy Anything
SHORT VIDEO CLIPS, 23 Jan 2023
What if we didn’t have to spend money on the things we need, getting them instead from our neighbors and building stronger communities in the process? When Liesl Clark and Rebecca Rockefeller started the Buy Nothing Project, that’s what they set out to create. With hundreds of groups around the world now, the infrastructure of Buy Nothing could transform our economy into one where resources are cycled rather than wasted.
The Story of Stuff Project is a nonprofit organization working to transform the way we make, use, and throw away Stuff so that it is better for people and the planet.
