Buy Nothing New this Black Friday

Posted on the 22nd November 2021

In 2017, Buy Nothing New Day was introduced by the Reuse Network as a way to put the spotlight on its members and reuse charity shops during one of the biggest consumer days of the year, Black Friday. We are pleased to see so many reuse charity shops are back open, however, they still need your support. So this Black Friday, Buy Nothing New and support reuse charities in carrying out vital work in the communities we call home.

What is Buy Nothing New Day?

Now in its fourth year, Buy Nothing New Day is the ethical alternative to Black Friday. Instead of buying new items from major retailers this Black Friday, pledge to buy from your local reuse charity either in-store or online.

What do reuse charities do?

Reuse charities make a difference. They help low-income households live better by giving them access to fairly priced goods. They tackle social exclusion by providing training and volunteering opportunities so that more people can get back to work and positively contributing to their communities. They combat climate change by reducing carbon emissions and cutting waste.

What can I do?

  • Find your local reuse charity here:
  • Follow them on social media.
  • Buy from their stores
  • Share our Buy Nothing New day social media cards and of course,
  • Join the Reuse Revolution and Buy Nothing New on Friday 26 November!
