The Day the World Stops Shopping

How to have a better life and greener world

J. B. MacKinnon


We can't stop shopping but we must stop shopping - the consumer dilemma that defines our lives and our future. What would happen if we did?

We are using up the planet at almost double the rate it can regenerate. To support our economies, we're told we must shop now like we've never shopped before, yet the scale of our consumption remains the biggest factor in the ruination of the world.

But what would life look like if we stopped? Visiting places where economies have experienced temporary shut-downs, artisan producers, zero-consumption societies and bringing together a host of expert views, this is both a history of our relationship with consumption and a story about the future.
