2021 Sustainable Black Friday

I didn’t have it in me to create an entirely new Sustainable and Ethical Holiday Gift Guide this year, but I did update last year’s with a few new and in stock items. Check it out here.

With supply chain delays and product shortages, it’s unclear how we should negotiate this season. If you’re invested in a slow fashion approach, this year’s messaging to “Buy early!” creates even more undesirable urgency than usual.

Plus, many sustainable and ethical brands are still trying to make up for last year’s losses, selling off old inventory or introducing new collections in more limited quantities. So it feels like the sale season will be a bit different.

But I still want to share my 2021 Sustainable Black Friday list because it is a rare opportunity to be able to buy ethically produced goods at a lower price point, which makes it a great time to try brands and buy things for others.

I’ll add brands as I discover them. Please comment if you know of sales not listed here!
