We don't need to participate in this shameful American tradition. This holiday,lets think more about giving and less about buying.

This montage put to beautiful Christmas music says it all. A stunning summary, in just a few minutes - from Black Friday madness to the toxic trash heap, it's the story of our endless, made overseas, good for nothing stuff!

Time to say: Enough.

Here are some great guidelines to follow for all your shopping throughout the year.
Before you buy something, ask yourself:

* Do I need it?
* How many do I already have?
* How much will I use it?
* How long will it last?
* Could I borrow it from a friend or family member?
* Can I do without it?
* Am I able to clean and/or maintain it myself?
* Am I willing to?
* Will I be able to repair it?
* Have I researched it to get the best quality for the best?
* price? How will I dispose of it when I'm done using it?
* Are the resources that went into it renewable or nonrenewable?
* Is it made or recycled materials, and is it recyclable?
* Is there anything that I already own that I could substitute for it?
