Buy Nothing Day

Attention Culture Jammers!
.
Financial markets are gyrating wildly again, our climate destiny is up for grabs in Paris this December and the war on terror feels like it’s escalating towards World War 3 … this is the perfect moment to make sense of the world by going on a 24-hour consumer fast this Black Friday.
.
Consumer capitalism lives or dies on how much we consume, so one of the most radical actions you can take is to buy nothing.
.
Since the early 1990s, Buy Nothing Day has inspired personal and collective action worldwide against a future that does not compute. It’s not just about changing your habits for one day, it is about rediscovering what it means to break free.
.
This Black Friday, remember that an object will never make you happy. It might for a few minutes, maybe even days, but in the end your experiences are all you’ve got. So this year why not get your family together and do something wildly different. Turn-off Cyber Thursday. Ignore Black Friday. Try buying almost nothing for Christmas and you might experience the most meaningful holiday season you’ve ever had.
.
And if you’re feeling feisty, then go poster a mall with counter-consumer mindbombs. Do a #PopeWalk. A Whirly Mart. A credit card cutup. Hold up a big funhouse mirror to the post-contemporary shopping frenzy!
.
Join millions of us in over 60 countries on November 27/28 for Buy Nothing Day and see what it feels like to take a stand.
Buy nothing, experience everything!
