Aaron,
I like your idea too. However, I think part of the point of Buy
Nothing Day is that it feels good and is life affirming not to consume.
Degrading consumption can be uplifting to people who are made to feel bad
for being unable to consume.
It also prompts people to look beyond economics in finding solutions to
the problems the economic system creates.

solidarity,
