What is Green Friday?
Green Friday is Preloved’s eco-friendly and sustainable alternative to Black Friday. It encourages you to think about how you shop and explore alternative ways of shopping to the online deals and high street discounts that dominate spending habits at this time of year.
When is Green Friday?
We will be celebrating Green Friday for a whole week leading up to November 24th. The week will be full of hints and tips of how to spend your Green Friday away from the shopping rush, as well as a chance to win fabulous prizes from the National Trust and Green Tulip.
How can I celebrate Green Friday?
Here at Preloved, Green Friday is in part about reigniting that important family message. Instead of getting up early this Black Friday to scour online deals, or to brave the high street – why not simply buy less this year and use that extra time to do something special with your loved ones? We have an array of articles for you to read; from craft ideas on reusing jars to great sustainable gifts as well as the best artisan markets in the UK.
Be creative – over on the blog and on social, we will be sharing our favourite DIY gift ideas. Be sure to share yours with us on social too using #PrelovedGreenFriday!
Stay local – instead of heading to city high streets and shopping centres, scratch your gift-hunting itch by visiting your local gift stores and artisan markets to see what unique treasures you can find!
Get outside – if buying gifts on Black Friday really doesn’t tickle your fancy, then why not escape into the beautiful British countryside for the day – you are bound to find some much needed peace there. Don’t forget to to stay tuned on our social media to watch out for our exciting competition!
We recognise our loved ones deserve the very best, but this should not be at the cost of our environment. Therefore, we will share alternative gift-wrapping ideas, talk about the apparent need of sending Christmas cards every year and simply dive into the world where the Festive and Ecological spirits meet.
