Greta Thunberg On Black Friday: ‘Don’t Buy Stuff You Don’t Need’


On Friday, teenage environmental activist Greta Thunberg issued a warning and directive to shoppers on Black Friday, the biggest shopping day of the calendar: “Don’t buy stuff you don’t need.” Thunberg also took note it was time for children to skip something they do need — education — by tweeting, “School strike week 119. Today is black Friday. Overconsumption is wrecking present and future living conditions and the planet itself. Don’t buy stuff you don’t need.” Thunberg has described her role as an activist as committing to “hold[ing] the older generations accountable.” In December 2018, Thunberg told CNN, “And we young people need to say that we must hold the older generations accountable for the mess they have created and expects us to live with.
