5 Reasons to Shop Green Friday
Thanksgiving is just a few days away, and that means our post-food coma shopping tradition is, too. And no, we’re not talking about Black Friday… we’re turning our Friday GREEN! That’s right, we’re green with (eco) friendly options this year, and we’re hoping you’ll join us!
Including saving 25% on everything in store, here are some other reasons to consider skipping the Black Friday frenzy and going green with us:
1. Shop Local
Spending your dollars locally will help our local economy, and in 2020… we need that more than ever!
2. Reduce Your Footprint
Did you know shopping online emits carbon, too? According to an MIT study, it is possible that online shopping can actually have a more damaging effect on the environment than shopping in store (due to things like packaging and speed of shipping). Shopping at Honolulu ReStore will not only help you reduce emissions and repurpose items, it will keep our island’s landfills empty and our neighborhood sidewalks cleaner.
(Fun fact: The Honolulu Habitat ReStore has helped divert over 524,000 pounds from Hawaii’s landfill this year!)
3. Your Purchase Will Make a Real Difference
A purchase at Honolulu Restore directly supports our mission to improve affordable housing conditions on Oahu. Proceeds will go straight toward building and preserving homes for local hard-working, low-income families.
4. Give a Unique Holiday Gift
Use this as an opportunity to upcycle items and create extra thoughtful, one-of-a-kind gifts this year. Another option? Consider making a donation in someone else’s name!
5. Save LOTS of Money
You can count on finding donated overstock, hard-to-find items like furniture, appliances, home décor, and building materials – all at 50%-80% off original retail value – PLUS an additional 25% off in honor of Green Friday!
P.S. If you donate your old housewares, furniture, tools or other gently used items to ReStore, you can get an additional 10% off your entire Green Friday purchase!
