Buy Nothing New Month

1 - 31 October, 2011

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. Obviously, you'll need to buy necessities such as groceries, medication and hygiene products - just steer clear of new items such as CDs, home décor, presents or luxury goods. Pledge to Buy Nothing New during October and challenge overconsumption.

Where: Australia-wide.
When: 1 - 31 October, 2011.
Cost: Free to participate, and you'll save time and money too!
