It is predicted that consumers will spend over 717 billion dollars this Black Friday- a number that has nearly doubled in the past 15 years. Many members of the slow living + ethical community are opposed to participating in Black Friday sales since it can encourage unnecessary spending, greed, and can even cut into family time during Thanksgiving.
If you love a good sale, but want to do something good with your Black Friday spending, consider shopping from a retailer that is doing good in the world by providing their workers with dignified work + fair pay. There are plenty of fair trade, ethical, and sustainable brands that are offering incredible sales this Black Friday + Cyber Monday!

I hope this list is helpful, and please spread the word that good can be done this Black Friday!
