This weekend, from 24th November, is Buy Nothing Day http://www.buynothingday.co.uk/ Of course, it doesn’t help much if you just put off the splurging until Monday. And most important is to consider what you buy, where it comes from and how long it will last, not how much. But anyway, I do think BND gets good publicity and makes some people think twice about consumerism. The perfect way to celebrate BND is to have a Power Party. Invite people round to cook up a feast from whatever food they have in the house. Or pool some craft materials and make some Christmas presents.
