and 27 November: Buy Nothing
Day to be celebrated in the UK and USA
Day exposes the environmental and ethical consequences of consumerism.
The developed countries - only 20% of the world population are consuming
over 80% of the earth's natural resources, causing a disproportionate
level of environmental damage and unfair distribution of wealth.

Day is a good place to start."
