We’re saying NO to Black Friday consumerism
Are you? Whether you are or not, you can’t deny the frenzy which happens all over the world during this relatively new ‘shopping period’. Recent headlines say…
“Black Friday UK: just one in 20 discounts are genuine, research finds”
Eco Glitter Fun pride ourselves in being open and transparent about our pricing and discounts. Instead of upping our prices in September and then bringing them down for ‘Black Friday’, our prices stay the same all year round. No tricks, just great value glittery treats for you, our eco glitter lovers.
So when you do see a deal directly from Eco Glitter Fun’s website, it really is a steal, so you better snap it up before its gone!
Our #saynotoblackfriday pledge
This year we are joining the movement #saynotoblackfriday and pledge to donate 10% of all sales which happen on ‘Black Friday’ to a body called Fashion Revolution. They believe in a fashion industry that values people, the environment, creativity and profit in equal measure. This year they are tackling the environmental and social damage of hyper-discount culture. They are asking consumers to take a stand against mindless consumption, and retailers to abstain from discounts.
Fashion Revelation says,
“Why? Black Friday represents a sore spot in an industry that runs on overproduction. When we buy into the seemingly good deals, we send a message to brands that it’s okay for them to thoughtlessly produce, at the cost of people and the planet, because we’ll help them get rid of their stockpiles as long as they are discounted steeply. Last year in the UK, this spending amounted to £1.49 billion over Black Friday Weekend.”
Our donations will go towards their 2020 Fashion Revolution Week campaign, aimed at empowering consumers and brands to do some good for the fashion industry this Black Friday weekend, instead of participating in overconsumption.
