Let’s skip the BIG BRAND deals and support local instead…
Black Friday has come around again.. and as tempting as it is to rush out and buy or order new things for more than half the price its only going to be worse for the environment. These discount deals encourage people to purchase things they don’t need causing ‘over production’. WHY NOT JOIN US FOR GREEN FRIDAY INSTEAD?
– Supports your community
– Helps the environment
– It’s more unique!
This year, we want to encourage people to shop local and use local services this season instead. Why not try doing all your Christmas shopping using local businesses instead? Not only is it better for the environment but your also makng a huge difference to someones small business while boosting the local economy as well. It could be a local hand made gift store or locally made produce. Or, if you cant think of what to buy someone you could even purchase vouchers from a local service such as a small beauty boutique or a local produce store.
Check out some lovely local Sussex offerings currently advertising on Friday-Ad…
