BUY NOTHING DAY 2019 — NOT BLACK FRIDAY — Canada & Worldwide

Fri Nov 29, 2019, Worldwide

"Bake them a cake, write them a poem, give them a kiss, tell them a joke, but for god’s sake stop thrashing the planet to tell someone you care. All it shows is that you don’t." — George Monbiot

BUY NOTHING DAY is an international day of protest against consumerism. In North America, the United Kingdom, Finland and Sweden, Buy Nothing Day is held the day after U.S. Thanksgiving, concurrent to Black Friday; elsewhere, it is held the following day, which is the last Saturday in November. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buy_Nothing_Day
