The first time I heard about Bunz, I thought it was a really intriguing concept. Instead of being a copy of Kijiji or Craigslist where you trade your used goods for money, Bunz was taking it really old-school by being a platform all about trading goods for goods.
The last time I heard about something like this, Hudson’s Bay was a fur trader, not a big department store.
The more digging I did, the more I fell in love with what Bunz is all about. It wasn’t just about trading, it was about building a community, disrupting modern capitalism and focusing on good will and helping people in need. It’s also about helping millennials specifically navigate this new world we’re in where incomes are low, prices are high, and we also need to think about living more sustainable and environmentally consciously.
So, I was really thrilled when Eli Klein, Manager of Publicity & Partnerships at Bunz, reached out to me because I actually really wanted to have someone from the core Bunz team on the show. In this episode, we chat more in-depth about what Bunz is and it’s main philosophy, as well as the different aspects of Bunz including trading with the app and the hundreds of Facebook groups (which I’m obsessed with).
