‘Green Friday’: 7 tips for an earth friendly Black Friday

by Erik Roscam Abbing

At Livework we’ve been having some heated lunch conversations lately about sustainability and the Black Friday phenomenon. We are – to put it mildly – rather amazed at the blatant consumerist tone-of-voice of the ads we’ve been bumping into: ‘Buy now or never!’, ‘Don’t miss out!’, ‘Only a fool would let this deal pass by!’ Advertisers make us believe we really need that new vacuum cleaner, flat screen TV or game console. While actually, well, maybe we don’t. And for sure the environment doesn’t. At Livework we believe buying a little less is a pretty good idea. And we’re not alone.
