Black Friday is a really great time to do your holiday shopping, but it can also be a real hassle to go to the shops and find something you like in the rush of people and excitement. Black Friday is also a time that’s quite wasteful. Why not make this Black Friday a Green Friday?
That’s why a lot of companies have turned their deals online. It’s also why a lot of us consumers have turned to online shopping.
For those eco-friendly brands that aren’t closed on Black Friday (and there are some that do so to eliminate waste and as a movement against the concept entirely), there are some with really great deals.
Here’s our top 4 choices for shopping at a good price:
An online consignment and thrift store that works for your closet, your wallet and the planet, thredUP already has up to 50% off your first order. They also have huge markdowns this Black Friday!
Wolven recycles plastic water bottles by making them into clothing, and it’s some pretty good-looking stuff, too! Their packaging is also sustainable… and right now everything is 40% off! Feels good for your wallet, right?
3. Tru Earth
Tru Earth is famous for their eco-strips: the smarter way to clean laundry. They’re clean, green, and simple! They also offer cleaning strips to replace buying cleaning liquid for your home! This holiday season they have a special holiday sale where you can save up to 37%!
4. 100% Pure
We’d be remiss to mention sustainable beauty because we know it’s on everyone’s mind! 100% Pure offers $10 beauty deals for every purchase of $35 or more. The brand prides themselves on using 100% pure ingredients in their products, and making an effort to be environmentally sustainable to give back to the global community.
And 4 for shopping with peace of mind:
1. MADE TRADE

Not only is 1% of every purchase donated to an environmental non-profit, but this Black Friday you can give 10% of your purchase to plant orchards in food insecure urban communities or get 10% off your order from Black Friday (Nov 26) through Cyber Monday (Nov 29). We know what we’ll be choosing!
With ethical manufacturing and a small global footprint, TenTree is a brand that focuses on sustainable shopping that gives back.
Not just for Black Friday, they guarantee that every item you buy plants 10 trees. Let’s get re-foresting!

We want to help you connect with sustainable retailers and conscious clothing brands for whatever you’re looking for: from women’s fashion to men’s fashion, accessories to home goods, and beyond – all in a very green, environmentally-friendly way.
So, of course, this Black Friday we have a special way to give back to the community and the world. 20% of your purchase will go towards planting more mangrove in cooperation with AZRAQ, a uniquely Dubai initiative that focuses on saving our oceans!
