Buy Nothing Day


It was difficult - But I managed it! Saturday the 24th of November is Buy Nothing Day here in the UK.


Okay - I have not single handedly changed the world - but if everyone thought carefully about what they bought and the social and environmental impact that they had through consumerism …?


Of course, Buy Nothing Day isn’t about changing your lifestyle for just one day - it should  be a lasting relationship with you consumer conscience - maybe a life changing experience? I now want to make a commitment to consuming less, recycling more and challenging companies to clean up and be fair. The supermarket or shopping centre might offer great choice, but this shouldn’t be at the cost of the environment or developing countries.

As consumers we need to question the products we buy and challenge the companies who produce them. What are the true risks to the environment and developing countries? We all know recycling is OK for the the environment, but consuming less is better and Buy Nothing Day is a great way to start.
