Stop Buying & Start Living !


Saturday November 25th 2006 is Buy Nothing Day (UK), It's a day where you
challenge yourself, your family and friends to switch off from shopping and tune
into life. Anyone can take part provided they spend a day without shopping – our
wasteful system has plentiful free stuff!


Only 20% of the world population are consuming over 80% of the earth's natural
resources, causing a disproportionate level of environmental damage and unfair
distribution of wealth.


Next time you are going shopping, think about...

Locally sourced fresh organic produce which tastes much better than supermarket

Products tested on humans, not animals!

The fewer air miles the better for the environment and society - how far have
the contents of your carrier bags travelled?!

Demanding products and services which are environmentally friendly and
ethically sound!

Only using products and services offered at fair and affordable prices - Good
for your wallet and the environment!

Have a Happy Buy Nothing Day!
