Buy Nothing Day

Buy Nothing Day is observed annually by social activists in protest of consumerism. 

It is an attempt to raise awareness about great disparities in wealth among nations and people, and the excessive consumption of natural resources in developed countries.

On this day, activists urge all citizens to cease participating in any form of consumerism for 24 hours, and to make a commitment to consuming less, recycling more and putting pressure on companies to be fairer and environmentally friendly.
