Buy Nothing Day – an international campaign fostered by the Adbusters Foundation – will be held around the world this Saturday November 29. Buy Nothing Day is a day to stop and think about our current state of consumption – why and how much we do it and what are the consequences? So if you see some people publicly cutting up credit cards, walking around supermarkets as cheerful zombies or taking a whirl around the store and distracting all the dedicated shoppers, you’ll know what its about! I haven’t been able to find if there’s any dedicated actions occurring in Melbourne, but if so, please post details in the comment box below.
