Novermber 30th 2013 is International Buy Nothing Day.
Do your part by not doing what corporations want.
Buy Nothing Day isn't just anti-corporatism, it's pro-environment. There is too much waste, too much consumerism, too much "disposable" junk.
Stop buying things that you throw away. Buy better quality stuff, and use it until it wears out. My last cell phone was four years old before it broke from everyday use, long after it was "outdated" in terms of features. ("Outdated"? No, I could still make phone calls and still receive calls. It worked.) And I still use the laptop computer I bought in 2006 because it works too. I use it for recording TV shows.
