The Buy Nothing Projects connects with people using simple Facebook groups. People can join the group if they are within the locale (say, in the city of Mill Creek), and start requesting items they are in search of, or posting items they wish to pass on. There is ABSOLUTELY NO MONEY or payment allowed for an item, it’s all free.
