Tomorrow November 24th is the international Buy Nothing Day (November 23rd in the US). More than 65 nations around the globe are involved. The first Buy Nothing Day was organized in Vancouver back in 1992 and has subsequently been promoted by the Canadian Adbusters magazine. The describe the Buy Nothing Day like this; “it isn’t just about changing your habits for one day” but “about starting a lasting lifestyle commitment to consuming less and producing less waste“. According to me it’s an important day for society to examine the issue of over-consumption. As I have mention before it’s impossible to just go on and buy more and more useless stuff. It’s about time to really think about our consumption and try to buy less but better products. I hope that this day of austerity could lead on to a more open-minded attitude towards materialism and the wear-and-tear society we are all part of.
