Happy National Day: Buy Nothing (11/29)

Buy Nothing Day is observed annually on the day after Thanksgiving. It’s part of a movement against consumerism, urging the world to change their purchasing habits, to produce less and ultimately consume less.

Fun Fact: Buy Nothing Day originated in Canada on September of 1992 as a way to protest Black Friday shopping. In 1997, the day’s founder moved the day to the Friday after Thanksgiving to correspond with one of the most popular shopping days in the United States.
