Come celebrate International Buy Nothing Day by participating in the Really Really Free Market! Don't give your time, money and life energy to greedy corporations that exploit the Earth and people. Come to the Really Really Free Market instead! SHARE, ENJOY EACH OTHER'S COMPANY, BE CREATIVE, NOURISH YOURSELF, PLAY, MAKE FRIENDS… Put an end to passive, mindless, destructive consumerism and CREATE THE WORLD YOU REALLY WANT. You make the market happen.

The Really, Really Free Market is like a giant potluck, made up of ideas, food, music, books, skills, games and many other resources that we as a community can come together and share. Everything is free. Yes, really really free. No money. No barter. No advertising. Just free.

As a community we have many more resources than we do as individuals. If we share our resources we won't need to buy as many new ones. This uses fewer of the Earth's resources, and fewer of our working hours, leaving us more time to devote to ourselves and our communities. Would we all work forty hours a week at one job if we didn't feel we had to? What if instead we worked at improving our individual skills and talents and shared them with each other? We would all spend more time doing things we enjoyed. The Really Really Free Market is an attempt to put these ideas into practice for four hours every month and then spread the seeds of share-tactics everywhere!
