Bunz Trading Zone App

Marketing & Social Media Management

Bunz is a trade-only community app that connects people with others in their city to exchange goods & services. With no cash allowed in the zone, Bunz has created an alternative trade economy, maximizing resources and minimizing waste through reuse and recycling. 


Bunz started as a single Facebook group, but quickly grew into a collective community of over 100,000 members across all zones. This demand led to the creation of the Bunz app where users can easily upload and search for items in their area. The app is available for iOS, Android and Web platforms.

Center for International Experience

& The Royal Ontario Museum

Program Development

As part of a small team of emerging museum professionals, Bethea developed an object-based guided tour for increasing intercultural competence.


Partnering with both the Royal Ontario Museum and the University of Toronto's Center for International Experience this tour became part of the larger Intercultural Learning Program Curriculum and a base for continued research on the subject. The process and result were presented at the 2016 iSchool Conference and the 2016 Ontario Museums Association Conference.
