Buy Nothing Day!

November 28, 2008 - 7:00am to November 29, 2008 - 6:59am

International Buy Nothing Day always falls on the day after the American Thanksgiving in November, traditionally the first day of Christmas shopping! People are encouraged to not make any purchases throughout the entire day. The idea is to increase participants' awareness of their spending habits and to think about mass consumerism and its effect on the cultural and natural environment of the world.
