Buy Nothing New Month

January 3, 2024

Back for its second year, Keep Britain Tidy’s Buy Nothing New Month is all about moving beyond simply recycling, to reducing the amount of new stuff that we buy, and by extension, the amount of waste that we create. It’s about cherishing the things we already have, repairing things rather than sending them to landfill, and finding new homes for the things we no longer need.

And it’s not just good for the planet. At a time when many are feeling the pinch, it’s an opportunity to save the pennies in our pockets too.

Last year, 65% of those who took part bought nothing new for a whole month, and an additional 31% bought less than they usually would.
