Funny and pointed: Buy Nothing (read all the way down to get most of the funny stuff).According to GOOD, where I saw this:

The effort comes from the simple insight that over the holidays we end up getting—and giving—tons of useless stuff. (Thanks, grandma, that Snow White figurine is lovely…) Green Thing even did a survey, which found that 96 percent of people have gotten a useless gift at some point. This stuff, of course, requires earth’s precious resources to make, yet most of it ends up as waste in landfills, junkyards, or a quick-to-be-forgotten box in the basement.Buy Nothing reflects one of Green Thing’s seven sustainable actions, “stick with what you got“—the idea that our purchases are often the product of advertising and peer pressure, rather than genuine need, as we often forget to appreciate and use what we already own. The campaign features a dozen clever, irreverent testimonials by celebrities—from indie bands like We Are Scientists to actors like Sadie Frost—all vowing to buy Nothing.
