Green Friday is the new Black Friday and here are some of the fabulous deals and discounts you can enjoy in Australia when you shop online this weekend and during the month of November.
Black Friday is happens on Friday 23rd of November 2018, and Green Friday is focused on sustainable, green and zero waste stores.
There's no need for hysterical shopping, but If there are products you have been wanting to buy for a more eco-friendly lifestyle then Green Friday (or Black Friday) is a great time to mindfully purchase zero waste and sustainable products at a big discount, including items with a lifetime guarantee.
Many of the deals and discounts listed run beyond Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but some are for a limited time only, see details for each below.
I always have several items on my wish list that I'd love to have, and it can take a long time for me to get around to making a purchase. During these sales, I have a few things that I will be getting, that I actually need and can help us live more sustainably. BUT I wont be mindlessly buying up on loads of plastic crap or junk I don't need. Remember, it's not a bargain if you didn't need it in the first place!
What I will be looking for are items that will last the distance, are ethically made, ideally Australian products that are shipped low or zero waste. (Head here if you want to know the best online shops in Australia for zero waste and plastic-free packaging).
