Here’s why you should support Green Friday this November.
While Black Friday sales might be great for your wallet, what they’re not so good for is the environment and the small businesses that just can’t compete with the bigger brands’ slashed prices. While there’s nothing wrong with enjoying Black Friday sales from our fave big brands, there are loads of sustainable and smaller brands you can shop from too that are much better for the environment.
Supporting Green Friday means shopping from a more sustainable brand or buying second-hand instead of rushing to buy fast fashion all the time. Every little helps, and even if you buy just one thing second-hand instead of new that’s a great start!
Tentree are on a mission to save the planet and plant a tree for every item of clothing they sell which has added up to over 100 million trees so far. They use ethical manufacturing and source sustainable and comfortable materials for all their clothing. You know that when you’re shopping here you’re helping the planet, so definitely check them out this Black Friday.
