Editor’s Picks: The Best Ethical and Sustainable Deals to Shop This November

Koala Eco

Those overwhelmed by the many sales in the lead-up to Christmas will be pleased to hear there’s one that’s meant to actually slow you down. Green Friday is a four-day event, this year in Australia running Friday, November 18 to Monday, November 21. It’s now live and you can find more info on Green Friday here.

The official event is based on a movement that encourages shoppers to buy with consideration and mindfulness, either by buying only from sustainable and ethical brands or by not buying anything at all.

Why should you care? I hear you asking. Well, the stats can tell you: 90% of Australian households have unwanted or unused items, 80% of household plastics and textiles are landfilled and $80 billion in fashion purchases end up in landfill each year. And, probably the most startling stat of all, in a climate change performance review of 64 countries, Australia ranked last.
