We had a nice time at our first Buy-Nothing Day event. It was a great opportunity to meet with friends old and new. We visited, ate snacks, and exchanged things from our lives that we wanted to gift. It felt like a cross between a silent auction and Christmas morning as the gifts were given to those that wanted them most.
Come Join the Eugene New Economy Working Group at the Eugene Garden Club (1645 High Street) on Buy-Nothing Day (Nov 23rd) to create community prosperity and gratefulness without shopping!
The event on the 28th was great with around 50 people in attendance. We enjoyed watching Fixing The Future and had some productive discussion afterward. There was a video taken which you'll find below
Our plan is to schedule regular meetings and events to bring in our larger community and keep making progress on our goals as well as give us all a chance to have fun together on a regular basis.
