I wrote about Buy Nothing Somerville a few weeks back. It’s a great way to reduce material purchases, and keep things out of the landfill and in productive use. And it helps your neighbors out, too. Just today, there was a request to borrow a wheelchair for a bride’s elderly grandmother to use at the wedding ceremony. As it happens, we had a wheelchair sitting around so we were happy to lend it out for a fellow Somervillian.
Our Buy Nothing moderator is moving so he’s passing the baton. Today, I raised my hand to co-moderate the forum on Facebook. I don’t know what I’m getting into, but it should be fun.
