The tradition of Black Friday started in the US, where Thanksgiving signifies the beginning of the Christmas shopping season. Since the mid-2000s, when online shopping began, local retailers in many countries have joined the frenzy, to offer discounts on this particular day in order to remain competitive. Today, Black Friday is an entire week of chaos around the world and has become a symbol of overconsumption and overproduction.
Everything we buy doesn't just cost money; it has an environmental cost too. The impact Black Friday has on the environment is unimaginable, through the exploitation of natural resources and pollution. Heavily discounted products encourage consumers to needlessly purchase items they don’t necessarily need.
Recently, a small online movement has started to take shape. Green Friday is a movement that challenges Black Friday and the irresponsible consumption it involves, encouraging consumers to think and act sustainably.
