Client’s Day- March 19

International Client’s Day is celebrated every year on March 19, with company owners and executives thanking their customers.
It was first celebrated today in 2010 in Eastern Europe. Business people in Lithuania, Poland and Russia initiated this day to thank customers who are the most important part of any business or organization.
On International Customers' Day, customers receive discounts, special offers and all kinds of gifts. This day is supported by communications companies, banks, shops, government organizations and even educational institutions in Lithuania and Russia. Hopefully this day will come here too and we too can indulge in promotions and gifts.

March 19th is also Caramel Chocolate Day

World Consumer Rights Day- March 15

Trade has existed since the dawn of human history. Already in the earliest times there was barter between people. For the fruits and vegetables you would grow in your land, you could buy wheat or skins for clothes. The problem was the difficulty in determining the value of the goods, the difficulty in finding buyers and sellers with suitable goods and the quarrels that would appear if goods were not good. Think you would have to go with Capricorn on your hands and walk around with him all day in the market until you would find him a buyer, who holds the goods you need. And what would happen if you found out at home that the tomatoes, for example, that you received were rotten?

The ancient consumer world was a very frustrating world and you needed a lot of luck in it.
Since then trade has evolved and today it is based on innovative technologies. Most of the purchases we make are documented on a computer and it is almost always possible to locate the seller from whom you bought if there is a problem.
Even trade in the modern period was not always simple and many disagreements arose between sellers and buyers, which often ended in front of a judge or by violence.

On March 15, 1962, US President John F. Kennedy delivered a speech on consumer rights that led to the creation of the Consumer Rights Act. Later, consumer rights activist Anwar Pazal, proposed holding the "World Consumer Rights Day" scheduled for March 15. It started in 1983 and since then every year consumer organizations mark this day as the promotion of the basic rights of consumers.
Consumer Rights Day is an annual event of celebration and solidarity within the international consumer movement. We are all familiar with the problems consumers face. To whom did it not happen that he received defective goods, that the sellers made price mistakes, that merchants made promises about products that were not fulfilled? This day concerns each and every one of us who wants to buy safely and get fair value for money.

 March 15 is also Brutus Day  and True Confessions Day

National Second-hand Wardrobe Day- August 25

When we talk about environmental protection, we mean that we should all reduce the use of electricity, fuel and water, consume less and recycle everything possible.
One way to reduce resource use and save money is to wear second hand clothes and not buy new clothes.

Did you know that since year 2000, world clothing production has doubled? We buy a lot of clothes that we do not need, wear them on average no more than 6 times and then throw them in the recycle bin or trash to make room in the closet for other clothes.
Second-hand clothing day is a day that aims to increase awareness of the importance of clothing recycling. This day can be celebrated in several ways: you can donate old clothes to charities that take care of the needy, hold a clothes change fair at home where people bring their clothes and can swap with others' clothes, buy clothes at thrift stores or sell your old clothes and make some money and more.

Where can we buy and sell second-hand clothes?
Almost in every state there are second hand stores and flea markets. On Facebook you can find places where fairs of second-hand clothes are held.
