Take a Break from Consumerism

How long could you go without buying anything new?

Excluding the essentials like food, health care products, medicine, and underwear how long could you go without purchasing a brand spanking new object?

If you belong to the Compact, a Bay Area based initiative to abstain from consuming new goods than you have dedicated yourself to abstinence for one year.

That means, no new ipods, cds, laptops, televisions, dvds, cell phones, etc...

Could you do it?

Amerikans produce 4.5 pounds of trash per day, making this nation the filthiest of all the industrialized nations.

Do your part and do try to not buy so much crap. Break out of the cycle of consumption that has been drilled into our heads since birth...

Do you really need that new purse?
