Green Friday Ireland 2019

Last years focus was on rallying and promoting businesses to do something different for Green Friday. We encouraged businesses to host an event, with particular focus on environmental events, or any form of offering that suited their needs and communicated their local value. Here are a few events from around the country showcasing the initiative, creativity and personal value that each small business has to offer.

Green Party Green Friday Eco Market, Cork City 

Menu-Bar-Logo-1-1_edited.png

The wonderful, passionate @lornabogue of @corkgreenparty @greenparty_ie has organised a Green Friday eco market that will be held on December the 13th in St Peters, Cork City.

‘Green Friday is an answer to Black Friday that’s local, eco-friendly and fun!

The idea is simple, instead of buying something from a large retailer online, why not have a look at unique products produced locally by your neighbors and friends.

This event aims to be inclusive, affordable and as close to zero waste as possible to provide a real and tangible anti-capitalist alternative for your gift-giving this year.
