Happy Holidays! I haven't posted anything like this to my blog before, but I think this will be really helpful for those of you who wish to make some mindful purchases this season. In this post, I am sharing my favorite eco-friendly brands and natural products that will be on sale! Some of these deals will not go live until Black Friday or Cyber Monday, so I will update this list once those deals are live! Since some companies are already advertising great deals, I wanted to get this post up early so you can start planning and browsing these ethical and sustainable options. Links to each brand's website will be included.
View the best eco-friendly, ethical, and sustainable Black Friday deals for 2020 by the following categories: HOME, ON-THE-GO, APPAREL, BEAUTY, and GIVE BACK.

"Pay it forward" These brands are giving back instead!
Here's an idea for you if you're sick of Black Friday deals and holiday madness, but you still want to treat yourself to something new. Instead, try supporting brands that are making donations instead of hosting sales. This will make you feel like you made a bigger impact than just saving yourself some money.

Everlane - $10 of Every Purchase Donated to Oceana to End Single-Use Plastics
In the past, Everlane has been known for their sustainable, ethical efforts on Black Friday. This company does not participate in price slashing for the holidays, instead last year they partnered with the Surfrider Foundation to donate $250,000 to clean up 20,000 pounds of plastic off beaches. I am excited to see what this brand does this year to give back!
Elate Beauty - Free Shipping + One Tree Planted with Every Order!
This beauty brand focuses on sustainable practices and packaging and to encourage customers to buy well and use less. Most of their packaging is bamboo and their products are cruelty-free and ethical. Get an optional free sample with your order this holiday.
