What is Green Friday?
Green Friday Ireland is a movement to highlight the value of Small Business in Local Communities. We are encouraging businesses to focus on how they offer value, experiences, and human connection first to their customers and asking customers to think more consciously about businesses within the community and how we can support them.
Why on Black Friday?
Traditionally Black Friday is a global day of mass consumerism, with large multinationals benefiting the most. We are asking people to rethink their behaviours and invest in their local communities and pave the way toward a smart, sustainable, and successful domestic economy.
Why now more than ever?
People know how much small, indigenous business means to the country, not only to our economy and our employment but also to our culture. People believe in supporting and uplifting each other and their communities. With a strong sense of community and togetherness we can over come whatever challenges lie ahead.
