Should We Cancel Black Friday?

Music by: RW Smith – Witchy Britches.

It’s CULTED with your 60-second NEWS BLAST.

Do you know what day it is today? It’s Black Friday!

There are queues, there are fights and more importantly, there are deals to die for.

But, unfortunately – our planet is also dying for Black Friday.

And while publications like Paper magazine are publishing the best deals for Black Friday, we urge you to rethink splurging this year, and instead, consider the impact that your overconsumption is having on our planet.

Over 300 companies have decided to prioritise our planet, over profit from Black Friday deals.

For example, from today clothing brand Patagonia are providing a platform for you to donate to an environmental organization.

Their CEO posted “this year, consider giving to our home planet in the name of someone you love”.

Beauty company Deciem is also closing all of its stores and taking down its website for all of Friday.

And zero-waste designer Phoebe English will be hosting a workshop on how to reuse waste fabric at the “green Friday festival”.

So guys – do you think Black Friday should be boycotted for the sake of our planet?

Let us know, below!
