Is it possible to go on one day without buying anything? Lucky guess is that it might be, but in big cities like London where stuff to buy literally fall into people laps, it might not be so easy.
On November 24 the world should take the challenge during the “Buy Nothing Day.” The initiative was created in the 90s by Adbusters, a Canadian not-for-profit organisation. The website of the UK event states:
Everything we buy has an impact on the environment, Buy Nothing Day highlights the environmental and ethical consequences of consumerism.
Truth said, everything we buy has an effect on our pockets too. So, in view of the day I suggest to think about what we buy and why we buy it by answering a poll, that you can find below.
