Just a normal Friday.
Last year on this exact day I was listening to the radio and I heard a commercial about a Pre Black Friday Sale. I was somewhat confused and saddened at the same time. How many sale days do we need? Black Friday? Cyber Monday? Pre-Black Friday? Cyber Week? Where does it end?
As per tradition, Go Green Baby will NOT be participating in Black Friday. We would LOVE for you to continue to support our small, local business Friday as you normally would! Stop in, say hi and share your love of what we do!
Instead of participating in Black Friday sales, we will be donating 10% of our purchases to a local charity or non profit. This year we have chosen to support Bambinos and Blankets - Bambinos and Blankets is a non profit organization that collects new and gently used essentials to donate to babies and toddlers in need. We will pick up items right from your door step and drop them to community organizations that know of people in need.
Why have we chosen to make this decision? We truly want our shoppers, clients, friends, family members and anyone else in our community to be making conscious and thoughtful decisions when making purchases. We want you to feel confident and proud of the products you purchase from our business. We want to encourage gratitude and thankfulness during this holiday weekend (in the US) and discourage overt consumerism this time of the year.
We also believe in the quality of our products and do not want to under value them by putting them on sale. Each product was given a price by the manufacturer or maker and that price reflects the true cost of what it takes to manufacturer that product from start to finish. Why would I want to devalue the work, time, materials and love that was put into making that product? When we constantly put items on sale, we come to think that products do not have value any more. This of course perpetuates the consumeristic cycle. Cheap product = more product. We believe in focusing on quality products and less products so that we can all live more simply and without impact to our earth.
Stop in to your favorite local businesses today to show your support! Choose local, choose the planet and choose simple.
