It’s here! BND 08

Welcome to Buy Nothing Day 2008.

In New York City you can “liberate your inner shopaholic from the excesses of holiday consumption and come boogie down instead” by attending Rev. Billy’s free dance party, “Buy Nothing Day 2008: Dance Your Debt Away!

In your own home, you can participate in the US National Day of Listening: “Ask the people around you about their lives — it could be your grandmother, a teacher, or someone from the neighborhood. By listening to their stories, you will be telling them that they matter and they won’t ever be forgotten. It may be the most meaningful time you spend this year.”

And, when one does shop next week, it’d be great to find some local businesses purveying local-developed and -created products. You can probably find ’em via LocalLectual.
