Buy nothing day

On Friday 27.11.2015 we celebrate Buy Nothing Day in Finland. Our theme this year is Sustainable Christmas. We hope to encourage people to think about the ecological footprint of their Christmas and thus e.g. buy less unnecessary products/gifts, waste less food and use ecological packing materials.

We encourage and support people to organize events about Sustainable Christmas all around Finland. Gather a group and organize an exhibit of unnecessary Christmas gifts, organize a gift swapping event or organize an alternative Christmas tree decoration event using only trash. Many more ideas for events can be found (in finnish): or by sending an email to the project coordinator:

Remember to check us out on Facebook and Twitter!

On our social media pages we give great ideas about how to spend a more sustainable Christmas.




Tell us how you spend a more ecological Christmas by sending email to:
