Rethink the Season

This week may be a unique opportunity to stop and consider our definitions of wealth. This week saw the UK government double the national debt in an attempt to tackle a crisis that began with bad debts. This weekend is Buy Nothing Day. (Friday in the US, and Saturday in the UK) The event is in its 17th year, but this is perhaps the most significant.

Between these two events, consumerism is suddenly on the agenda in ways it hasn’t been for a long time. We have a window of opportunity to stop and think hard about the unsustainable nature of our economy – socially, financially, and environmentally – and ask some questions about how you really want to live.
