Do The Green Thing Do Nothing

The team at Do the Green Thing produce wonderful web articles and activities that encourage people to Do the Green Thing. Their best one to date, in support of the annual Buy Nothing Day, is their best to date. I liked it even more when, in response to buying one of their nothings, for nothing, I received this


Dear Andy Middleton,

I regret to inform you there has been a problem with your order (Reference: TH1NA1R-N4DA).

A disgruntled former employee of Nothing Ventures, Nothing Gains Ltd snuck into our Nada-nadaland factory last week and tampered with the seals on all our Nothings.

We take non-product safety extremely seriously, and so have issued a worldwide product recall of Nothing effective immediately.

We're afraid nobody will be getting Nothing for the immediate future.

Please bear with us at this difficult time - we will send Nothing to you as soon as possible.

Thank you for your understanding.

Yours sincerely,


Jack Schitt

Junior Deputy Vice-manager-in-chief, Non-Product Safety Division, Nothing Ventures, Nothing Gains Ltd
