Will you support

Buy Nothing New Month 2024? 

As the New Year begins, Prospect Hospice pledged to support Keep Britain Tidy’s new campaign, Buy Nothing New Month. Taking part allows us to help our supporters to protect the planet and save their pennies, by living more sustainably and considering the effects of their spending habits on the planet.

The campaign challenges people to prevent and reduce the waste they generate by buying nothing new for one month, choosing instead to buy second hand items, or donate things they no longer want or need instead of throwing them away, as well as repairing, upcycling, and reusing.

Buy Nothing New Month aims to move people up the waste hierarchy, encouraging people to prioritise other measures above recycling waste, such as preventing it in the first place, and reducing items that could become waste – while also saving money.  

And what better way to do this than donating your unwanted items to us to raise money to help us care and support local people living with a terminal illness, or buying high quality preloved items from one of our wonderful shops?

As a charity we recognise that many of our supporters and customers are still feeling the effects of the cost of living crisis and that many are concerned about climate change and want to take steps to reduce their carbon footprint.

Now in its second year Buy Nothing New Month takes place from 1 to 31 January, 2024. 65% of participants last year managed to buy nothing new for a whole month.
