          Buy Nothing Day

         Be a Consumer Hero!

More than a million people will celebrate 11 years of opposition on the unofficial "opening day" of the Christmas shopping frenzy. Play this one right and we will make Buy Nothing Day 2002 a global event. Previous participants have come up with the traditions: swap meets, teach-ins, concerts, street theatre, credit-card cut-ups, postering, potlucks.    . . . from Ad Busters

It's a day where you challenge yourself, your family and friends to switch off from shopping and tune into life. Celebrated as a holiday by some, a street party by others - anyone can take part provided they spend a day without spending!

On the last Friday of November, thousands of people around the world celebrate International Buy Nothing Day by buying absolutely nothing for 24 hours. Learn about this day and help yourself and the environment  too!
