Green Friday!

What Is Green Friday?

Green Friday is an initiative designed to inspire conscious purchasing whilst taking part in the deals that arise during Black Friday and the Cyber weekend.

As environment enthusiasts we love alternatives, and Green Friday creates an environmentally effective option, encouraging conscious and sustainable purchasing!

So you can still get great deals ahead of the silly season and support businesses whilst reducing excessive waste and inspiring good habits!



Green Friday kicks off on the last Friday of November - this year it falls on Friday the 26th.

By participating in Green Friday we're aiming to inspire conscious and sustainable shopping.

So how can we shop consciously? Shopping consciously involves reflection and research. Shopping and supporting small businesses is a great example of shopping consciously, especially if the small business is within your local community! You can also focus on shopping sustainable and reusable items, to minimise waste during the gift giving season. You could even look into how your item is packaged and choose sustainable packaging as this time of year packaging waste skyrockets! 


So what is Pottery For The Planet doing for Green Friday?

We’ve got just two words-MYSTERY BOX! This year Pottery For the Planet is releasing our reusable ceramic Travel Cup Mystery Box deal, giving you sustainable alternatives for conscious bargain hunting and gift giving.

We believe that giving a sustainable gift can be the catalyst in creating environmentally conscious behaviour in our friends, colleagues and loved ones. Our Mystery Box is a 2 for 1 deal on our ceramic reusable Travel Cups. The Mystery Box will include Two Travel Cups with gorgeous surprise glazes.

This box is perfect to treat yourself and someone special! With our Mystery Box you’ll be stepping up your sustainable journey, gifting a good habit (no more single-use takeaway cups), helping reduce single-use plastic waste, and making a conscious and sustainable purchase all whilst saving 50% on your environmentally friendly goodies!

It's not just our Travel Cups that are sustainable - check out our packaging too! 
We source and reuse packaging from local businesses, thus combating the mass amount of packaging waste created year round! Brown paper, newspaper and repurposed bubble wrap (that was going to be thrown out by local businesses) are our best friends when it comes to safely wrapping up your treasures.

Not to mention the latest addition to the Pottery For the Planet Family, Munchy! Our cardboard shredder creates the most sustainable and safe packing materials for your ceramics. Meet Munchy here!


So while you're doing your conscious sale shopping, have a look at our reusable Travel Cup Mystery Box -  it's good for your bank account and great for your planet!
