Buy Nothing Day

Stop what goes into the waste stream right at the source.  Next time you are about to buy something, ask yourself the following questions:  "Do I, or the other person I am buying this for, really NEED this? Is there another product that would do the same thing but more sustainably? Will this last a long time? Do I know how this item was made, how it will be used and how it will be disposed of? Where was this made and under what circumstances? Are the materials used to make this renewable and have they been harvested in a sustainable manner?" (Greenpeace, 2007).
