Buy Nothing Day

Oops, I forgot to post this last Friday. In the spirit of resource conservation, fiscal prudence, and consumer cleansing, National Buy Nothing Day occurs once a year on the Friday following Thanksgiving; a brilliant response to a day heretofore dedicated to celebrating extreme American materialism. Buy Nothing Day (BND) is the brain child of Canadian artist Ted Dave and was first celebrated in 1992. Since then Adbusters has been responsible for launching it as an annual event. Mark your calenders for next year!!!
