October is Buy Nothing New Month.
http://www.buynothingnew.com.au/Buy Nothing New is not about going without, nor is it Buy Nothing New Never.
It’s about taking October to reassess what we really need, think about where the stuff we buy comes from (finite resources), where it goes (landfill), and what our alternatives are.
It is about conscientious consumption and by not spending on stuff we don’t need, increasing our savings for the things we do need.
Pledge to Buy Nothing New during October and challenge over consumption.
You’ll have more time on your hands and money in your pockets.
This is something I've been trying to do for the last year or so (not buy *nothing* new, but definitely challenge my own views on what i actually need and how better to obtain things), and i think this challenge will be hard but really really fun!
Who is in with me? It'd be great to have some buddies to help think of ideas to get around buying new things
