What is Green Friday?

When is Green Friday?

Did you know that Black Friday was a originally a phrase coined by police in Philadelphia back in 1950? Unlike today, this was not down to shopping discount madness, but due to the increased amount of people traveling home after spending precious time with their family and friends for Thanksgiving.

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 - like Christmas crafts at the National Trust?

Green Friday is also an opportunity to consider local and eco-friendly businesses when you are out gift hunting this Christmas. Instead of settling for mass produced items, see what delights you can find in your local area - there are plenty of treasures to be found. Better still, get creative and make something yourself - like a gift in a jar!

This is Preloved's first ever Green Friday! We will be celebrating it on the run up to Black Friday, which will be held on the 25th November this year. To help inspire you to embrace this very special campaign, we have been busy collating ideas on how you can make the most of Green Friday.

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 check out our competition below so you can bring the family along too!
