Buy Nothing New Month at Reverse Garbage

1-31 October at Reverse Garbage and Australia wide


Reverse Garbage, Brisbane's mecca of quirky sustainable products celebrates October as part of the Buy Nothing New campaign!

Buy Nothing New Month reflects a growing global movement of people reassessing how and what they buy. Instead of a throw away attitude to 'stuff', Buy Nothing New Month extends the life of existing goods, maximises the value of existing stuff while promoting re-cycled, free-cycled, up-cycled, second-hand, 'swishing' and sustainable alternatives to buy nothing new that are better for you, your wallet and the planet.
