Today in America and tomorrow in the UK, it's National Buy Nothing Day, an annual protest against consumerism organised by a group called Adbusters.
The rules are simple, for 24 hours you will detox from consumerism and live without shopping. Anyone can take part provided they spend a day without spending!
Buy Nothing Day is the biggest 24-hour moratorium against consumerism. People around the world will make a pact to take a break from shopping as a personal experiment or public statement and the best thing is - IT'S FREE!!! '
