october is ‘buy nothing new month’

I like the concept of ‘buy nothing new month’ which is being promoted by the Salvos stores. The only thing I am a dubious about is their Radio Rentals sponsorship, and how they say renting things from radio rentals lowers your footprint. Really? I’d think buying an appliance and keeping it for a really long time is better than renting the appliance and constantly upgrading it. But that’s just me.

Otherwise, a great idea. And they have a blog too. I’ll give it a go this month, and see how I do.
