Firstly - This is beyond
TO buy / consume > we have several reasons!!!
To Appreciate what you have - u don't need a reason!
Reasons for participating in Buy Nothing Day are as varied as the people who choose to participate. Some see it as an escape from the marketing mind games and frantic consumer binge that has come to characterize the holiday season, and our culture in general. Some use it to expose the environmental and ethical consequences of over - consumption & others have their own reasons!
This is a stand against Consumerism. Life is Choking! & the drain is clogged!
Two recent, high-profile disaster warnings outline the sudden urgency of our dilemma. First, in October, a global warming report by economist Sir Nicholas Stern predicted that climate change will lead to the most massive and widest-ranging market failure the world has ever seen. Soon after, a major study published in the journal Science forecast the near-total collapse of global fisheries within 40 years.
