Blog : Go Green This Black Friday!

By Katie | Nov 24, 2014 | in

Every year, millions of shoppers swarm to big box stores, on a mission to score the best deals for everyone on their list. Aside from the documented stampedes that have occured, the frustration of finding a parking spot, and so on, there are a number of great reasons to ditch the lines this Friday. 

With that said, we propose "Green Friday" in place of "Black Friday." In fact, the Green Alliance is so excited about Green Friday, that we're going to run our Green Friday special from November 24 through December 1. For the next week, purchase a Green Alliance Membership for only $20, (regularly $35), through our Green Friday promotion! The GA Membership allows you to visit some of your favorite local shops and eateries, (to refuel for more shopping, of course), while enjoying discounts at nearly 100 local, sustainable businesses.

Going Green this Friday not only supports the local economy, at a time when your fellow community members could use the business the most to support their family, but ensures that you are getting great, quality products that are truly unique. Stores such as Prelude, Green Earth Baby Works, The Natural Dog, and nearly 100 more will have the perfect gift for your occassion.

 Whether you opt to become a GA Member and take advantage of these generous discounts this season, or are just looking to score the best products available, we urge everyone to think locally. "Plaid Friday" a new term to encourage shoppers to look at all types of stores, not just the big box stores often associated with Black Friday. Whether you go Green with the GA, or Plaid with the rest of the community, it is important to make conscious decisions about each purchase.
