Parties to save power to save the planet

Buy Nothing Day November 20, 2007

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.

On 8th December 2007, the Global Climate Campaign is calling for the largest international marches and public meetings on Climate Change that the world has ever witnessed. Hang out a white flag. If you can’t get to a march or meeting, use the occasion to have a power party. Just have a get together for any reason you want, but tell guests that part of the reason is to save power in all your homes.

This movement needs materials to make Power Party invitations.

The first priority:

Are there any designers willing to make and share a logo that says This is a Power Party, including a link to https://powerparties.wordpress.com?

The second priority:

Any copy or illustrations that show positive ways of saving power when you get together, especially reminding guests to turn down/switch off before they leave home and use a green way of getting there.

The third priority:

Share your photos of Power Parties
