Video: A Celebration of Unshopping
I wrote here about Buy Nothing Day, and here about how we celebrated.
The best thing about this project was how it made us more aware of our own consumerism, and more determined to be mindful about what we "need," what we want and what we buy, during what has become a season of excess, and beyond.
Thanks to Randi Cecchine, wonderful editor and friend, and to Georges and my anonymous camera man.
