Let’s be honest, it can be exhausting scrolling through endless pages of products. Clothes, beauty supplies or furniture, we all get a little excited seeing items go in our cart but never end up entering in our card info. Adding a sale to that can be dangerous. This Black Friday, keep a close eye on what are wants and what are needs, and save yourself the buyers regret or need to return (causing extra pollution returning by mail or gas driving somewhere). This allows for a more mindful shopping experience rather than rushing through to grab what you think you need. We’ve curated a list of some awesome Canadian brands proudly representing Green Friday. Thoughtful shopping!

Londre Bodywear: They are super advocates for shopping mindfully over Green Friday. Also, for every purchase of $150+, Londre will plant a baby coral.

The Ordinary: instead of just one day, they keep their sale going throughout the month of Slowvember. Their motto is Taking Black Back Friday and we love to hear it.

IKEA Canada: they’ve introduced their Green Friday event which allows customers to bring back their second-hand for a store credit and these gently used or discontinued items at an affordable price for November.
