Seek out an Alternative to a Black Day with a less stressful, Green Friday and Make a Difference

With all the hype, high-pressure sales tactics and related stress around Black Friday, why not seek out an alternative to a black day with a less stressful Green Friday?

For what purpose?

Setting aside the 23rd of November to be a Green Friday can make it a day with a difference; for your wellbeing, the shared environment and the people that make the products that you buy.


  • Getting outdoors to wintry greenery – away from enormous queues, crowded shops or cooped up with laptops to hunt down a deal will de-stress and do wonders for your health and happiness.
  • Indulge in some conscious consumerism – organic or Fairtrade certified.

The Soil Association or Fairtrade symbols on a product are the marks of an effective and ethical supply chain.

Four reasons why:

  • Organic is better for the environment
  • Organic also heavily restricts the use of chemicals
  • The health of workers is always a priority
  • Fair price & trade for all

Either way – spending a Green Day will make a difference to your wellbeing, your wallet and positively impact those involved in the supply chain and the environment.
