Buy Nothing (New)

Reduce Consumption First

If you’re trying to reduce your waste and avoid unnecessary purchases, Thrifting / Buy Nothing Facebook groups are a great place to find pre-loved goods and even donate what you no longer need but that someone else could use, without sending it to landfill.

Repair Broken Goods

Broken household goods? Don’t throw them out! Ottawa Tool Library has regular repair workshops to help people fix their broken household items such as a toaster, blender or vacuum and give it new life rather than sending it to landfill.
