While yesterday was the official Buy Nothing Day, sponsored by Adbusters. It's not a bad idea for more than a day. Adbusters proposed, "For 24 hours, millions of people around the world did not participate -- in the doomsday economy, the marketing mind-games, and the frantic consumer-binge that's become our culture. We paused. We made a small choice not to shop. We shrank our footprint and gained some calm. Together we said to Exxon, Nike, Coke and the rest: enough is enough. And we helped build this movement to rethink our unsustainable course."
