BUY NOTHING DAY

 

 

artit

   

Whislt studying in Norwich in 2005 I arranged an ‘action’ at the (then) new Chapelfields shopping centre in order to raise awareness of Buy Nothing Day ( in November) and therefore to encourage people to think twice about their need to buy. I and fellow students handed out brown paper carrier bags (made from recycled paper which I had designed and screen-printed by hand), which contained a card with information and stickers for people’s wallets or credit cards.

We had a lot of fun and started lots of interesting conversations.

Ironically, Buy Nothing Day now coincides with the aptly named Black Friday pre-Christmas shopping bonanza.
