What is this observance all about?
Buy Nothing Day is an informal day of protest against consumerism observed by social activists. 

What is the Origin of this day?
It was founded by Vancouver artist Ted Dave and subsequently promoted by the Canadian Adbusters magazine.

Despite controversies, Adbusters managed to advertise Buy Nothing Day on CNN, but many other major television networks declined to air their ads. Soon, campaigns started appearing in United States, the United Kingdom, Israel, Germany, New Zealand, Japan, the Netherlands, and Norway. Participation now includes more than 65 nations.

While critics of the day charge that Buy Nothing Day simply causes participants to buy the next day, Adbusters states that it "isn't just about changing your habits for one day" but "about starting a lasting lifestyle commitment to consuming less and producing less waste."

When was the first Buy Nothing Day?
The first Buy Nothing Day was organized in Vancouver in September of 1992 "as a day for society to examine the issue of over-consumption."
