[GreenYes] Fwd: Reminder: Buy Nothing Day

>To: District8-CRRA@yahoogroups.com, SustainableMV@yahoogroups.com

>Excerpted from an item in the Fall 2001 newsletter for RE Sources, a 
>non-profit environmental education organization based in Bellingham, WA:
>
>Buy Nothing Day is an international event held each year on the day after 
>what we in the United States celebrate as Thanksgiving.  This year it will 
>be on Friday, Nov. 23.  The intent is to turn America's traditional 
>busiest shopping day into a day where, instead, people consider the 
>impacts of "shop-till-you-drop" consumerism and choose to "Buy Nothing."
>
>The used building materials stores that RE Sources operates in Bellingham 
>and Seattle (the RE Store) will be closed this year, as always, on Buy 
>Nothing Day.  RE Sources encourages our supporters to spend time with 
>friends and family on Nov. 23 and to enjoy the bounty of our natural 
>environment.
