On the busiest shopping day of the year, people from all over are urged to come to Naperville to celebrate Buy Nothing Day.
On the busiest shopping day of the year, citizens of Naperville, IL will join people in over 30 countries around the world to enjoy a holiday from the consumer frenzy.

Now in its eleventh year, Buy Nothing Day is a 24-hour consumer fast and celebration of sustainable living. Over one million people around the world are expected to help BND 2002 break through First World denial about the consequences of overconsumption.

People in the industrialized countries make up just 20% of the world population but consume 80% of the world's resources and produce 80% of the toxic wastes.

"Is our level of consumption moral and ecologically sustainable? I challenge the media to put that question to their communities and their experts," says Kalle Lasn, founder of Adbusters Media Foundation, the Vancouver-based group that has been promoting Buy Nothing Day since 1993.

This year's local Naperville/Chicago Suburbs Buy Nothing Day celebration will feature a large gathering outside of Barnes and Noble at downtown Naperville, 47 East Chicago Ave.

Don't miss the first party of the Christmas season!
