Buy Nothing Day

Today is Buy Nothing Day. This means no grocery shopping, no tempting online offers and certainly no visits to the mall. Luckily there is lots of food left from our Thanksgiving dinner to tide us over food-wise!

This was today's editorial cartoon in the LA Times, with this text:

Today, no purchase necessary

We asked him to create a graphic Op-Ed in support of the annual informal protest known as Buy Nothing Day.
