ShoppingStrike in a nutshell

The problem

Companies would ideally reduce emissions if appropriate laws were passed.

But that's not the whole picture.

Companies will always work around these laws instead of abiding by them if they can make a bigger profit by doing so.

That's why you and I need to point them in the right direction: no more money for emissions that we don't need.

Our approach

Simplified, we put it like this: what we don't shop, doesn't create emissions.

Here comes our reasonable contribution to something, that is obviously so much more complex than the above statement:

  • It is hard not to get tempted to shop while all the ads are around. So, banning ads from public spaces is one major goal of ShoppingStrike.org.
  • It gets easier to refrain from shopping, when there is a community of people that say: "Hey, I'm with you, I feel the same thing, let's be strong together!". That's why the ShoppingStrikeSaturday-demos are another major task for ShoppingStrike.org.

Home page

The old info/diary-page from our founding days is out of date and a new hompage is in the release pipe. We need more collaborators on both front- and backend. Contact admin at this domain if you feel like helping out now, or some time in the near future.

To join the demos, or for other forms of contribution or feedback, contact info at this domain.

  Cheers and thanks from the team!
