Pledge to Buy Nothing New this October, then with the exception of essentials (food, drink, medications, hygiene products) you can beg, borrow, barter, swap or buy second hand whatever you need.
You just buy nothing new.
You'll be surprised the time you get when you shop for what you need, not what you want, and the money you can save when you look at the alternatives to buying new.
Second hand ain't second best !
In fact you're a second hander from way back, you just don't realise it yet.
When you eat in a restaurant do you think you're the first to eat from that cutlery?
In a hotel, you don't think you're the first to use those sheets and those towels do you?
See? You ARE a second-hander.
Why not expand that thinking and get into some of the amazing second hand stores around town (if in Victoria, check out the awesome Brotherhood of St Laurence and Sacred Heart Mission stores. Check out our Where to Buy Nothing New page for a list of charity stores to designer boutiques, markets and swaps.
Pledge and we'll send you some tips on how to Buy Nothing New and check your progress. (Your details are sacred and used only for communication between us and you.)
