Reverend Billy and The church of stop shopping are critical of our addiction to shopping – especially at Christmas. They suggest we are facing a ‘Shopocalypse’ – arguing that overconsumption fuels the debt crisist, global warming and destroys local economies and communities if products are purchased from TNCs. They suggest that we should use Christmas as a time to develop positive new low-consumption habits – learning to be happy with less!
If you can’t ‘back away from the product’ entirely this Christmas, then at least shop locally! Allejuah Amen!
