Happy Thanksgiving! Now, buy nothing tomorrow…

posted November 28, 2008

Happy Thanksgiving from The Greenhorns!  We hope you spent today eating delicious, local, sustainable, farm-fresh fare with good family and friends (tell us about it if you did!).  Now that we’re all feeling warm and fuzzy and full, why not spend tomorrow taking a nice walk, digesting, sitting by woodstoves and not shopping! Doesn’t that sound nice? Here’s a great note we received about “Buy Nothing Day”….

Buy Nothing Day Confronts the Economic Meltdown

As we run out of money, resources and wilderness, and the planet keeps heating up, maybe it’s time to confront the root cause of our global crisis: overconsumption by the most affluent one billion people of the world. On November 28 why not confront your own consumption by going on a consumer fast for 24 hours? Like the millions of people who have done this fast before you, you may be rewarded with a life-changing epiphany. If you’re already an experienced Buy Nothing Day celebrant, check out the action pyramid at http://adbusters.org/bnd and take the BND message to the streets.
