Survey - Are You a Consumer Hero?

You really need to buy this!
On the last Friday in November, the International Buy Nothing Day is celebrated around the world. On that day we are asked to be
a Consumer Hero, not a Consumer Zero and stand up against the pressure to BUY! BUY! BUY!"

We would love you to take a few minutes and fill in our survey.  The survey is anonymous- we don't want you name or your address. Your privacy will be respected.

We want to find out what kids as consumers think on a number of issues: 


  • the influence of advertising on their spending habits

  • impact of  TV and the Internet on what kids want

  • allowances

  • leisure activities

  • concern for the environment
