The Freeshop is being organised by Kernow Action Now!, a grassroots social and ecological direct action group, to celebrate Buy Nothing Day. Buy Nothing Day is an international day of action against consumerism and corporate exploitation.
Michelle Roberts from KAN! said,
“We’re holding the Freeshop to celebrate and encourage community cooperation and sharing, over consumerism and waste culture. We’d love for you to get involved.”
The Freeshop will be held on Saturday 28 November from 1-3pm outside Woolworths. If successful, similar stalls will be held once a month in different towns around Cornwall.
