Why We Are Turning Black Friday Greener

Black Friday is the busiest shopping day of the year! Good for an online retailer yes? Well yes in principal, but as you know here at Greener Beauty we really do care. We care about the animals and we care about the Planet and for that reason traditional Black Friday sales just don’t sit that well with us.

Black Friday encourages mass consumerism not sustainable consumption. Year on year we see the worst and most wasteful behaviours come out amongst humankind and that has consequences. Smartphones, TVs and laptops are some of the most bought items on Black Friday and often these items are bought purely based on their bargain factor rather than need. This in turn means disposal of more products and therefore more items in landfill, which is a consequence that lasts for centauries.  It has also been estimated that in the UK alone, 82,000 diesel vans and trucks will head out on UK roads due to increased shopping habits which inevitably causes causes increased air pollution.

But of course we all need to shop, especially with Christmas around the corner.  We are not suggesting we shouldn’t be shopping at all, just that we all shop responsibly by buying more planet friendly items, thoughtfully, from ethical retailers.

We absolutely feel we fit this criteria but we want to give back even more this Black Friday weekend. Following the success of last years Greener Friday weekend we will be running something similar this year, this time with even more charitable benefits.

For all orders placed online between Friday 27th up to the end of Monday 30th November we will be donating 20% of profits between Animal Justice Project and Hugletts Wood Animal Sanctuary.

In addition to this, in an effort to offset some of the environmental impact of the weekend, we will plant TEN trees per order instead of the normal one, via our partners at the Eden Reforestation Project.

And one last treat for you, our lovely customers. If you buy any of our Greener Beauty Gift Boxes you will get a £10 off voucher instead of a £5 voucher! :)⁠
