November 30th 2013 is Buy Nothing Day (UK). 
Buy Nothing Day is a great way of reminding yourself you don't need to go shopping. The purpose of Buy Nothing Day is to make people pay attention to what we buy and why.
In today's world, most of us buy too much, too often. Shopping has become an addiction and there is really no need for us to buy half the stuff we purchase. You help save our planet by not going shopping. You consume less and this means we use fewer of Earth's resources.
Buy Nothing Day is the biggest 24-hour campaign against consumerism. And the best thing is, IT'S FREE!.
