Zero Waste, Sustainable Brands with Black Friday & Cyber Week Sales (2021)

Updated: 3 days ago

There are ethical, sustainable companies out there offering sales during Green Friday and Cyber Monday this year! With a little planning ahead, you can purchase things for yourself and others from these zero waste companies with a much smaller environmental footprint.


Shop Ethically Online and Stay Home


Especially with coronavirus still a huge risk in the U.S. and on the rise in many states, it's important for everyone to stay home whenever possible (especially if you're in a state that doesn't require masks in stores). Black Friday sales are likely to draw large crowds to many big box stores with little room for social distancing.


Instead, there are many companies offering discounts online! This doesn't mean I recommend you simply purchase these things to try to shop away your winter blues. Overconsumption is never eco-friendly and never zero waste. Buy what you need from these stores and only what you cannot find secondhand.


Below is a list of sustainable, green, eco-friendly companies offering discounts that you might have been eyeing. Or you have a particular person in mind who you still haven't picked out the right gift for. In those cases, please take advantage of the discounts offered!


The post is broken down into zero waste businesses with Black Friday sales by category:

  • Zero Waste Supplies Stores

  • Clothing & Apparel Companies

  • Cosmetics & Skincare Brands

  • Personal Care & Bathroom Products

  • Cleaning & Kitchen

  • Household Goods & Bedding

  • Tech & Gadgets

There are many more companies we are watching to see if they announce sales closer to Black Friday's official date!

Give Back What You Saved


Then donate the money you saved to feed the hungry! Seriously. 54 million people across the U.S. are going hungry this week. Donate to Food Lifeline or simply send a contribution to @Jenica-Barrett on Venmo. All proceeds will go towards the COVID Mutual Aid Group in Seattle to purchase groceries. Last year we raised over $300 from this community to feed our neighbors in Seattle.
