Buy Nothing Day was founded in Vancouver, Canada in 1992 by artist Ted Dave in an attempt to educate our society on over consumption, and consumerism. Buy Nothing Day is celebrated every year on the Friday after American Thanksgiving in an attempt to curb unnecessary purchases on Black Friday.
On National Buy Nothing Day, it’s important to step back and reflect on our purchasing behavior. The holidays are fast approaching and that means you have ample opportunity to shift your perception and move towards a more sustainable way of life.
Instead of gifting material items, you can gift one-of-a-kind experiences that don’t fill up our landfills. Opting for experiences like camping trips, backyard movie nights, or epic skiing adventures make for a happy holiday and a grateful environment.
How can I Gift an Experience?
Ruckify is the world’s largest peer-to-peer marketplace that makes the sharing economy accessible to each and every one of us. Ruckify gives renters and owners the opportunity to share items seamlessly within their communities.

How Does Renting Positively Impact the Environment?
Renting is a sustainable alternative to buying that allows us to have a more positive impact on the environment. When we rent instead of buy, we save resources and money, contribute to our local economy, and extend the life cycle of our products.
What Is the Sharing Economy?
The “sharing economy” is an umbrella term that encompasses other economic systems, including peer-to-peer economy, collaborative economy and consumption, freelancing economy, crowdfunding and crowdsourcing, and also co-working and co-branding.
The sharing economy can simply be defined as a way to adapt more sustainable shopping habits that contribute to the well-being of the planet and Ruckify makes that possible.
