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?
