Though department stores and mega-chains generally get all of the attention when it comes to Black Friday, they’re not the only places whose sales you should consider taking advantage of. Do your wallet and the planet a favor by checking out this epic roundup of green beauty Black Friday deals. Eyebrows on fleek and the knowledge my makeup bag isn’t full of environmentally harmful products? Count me in.
Just like sustainable, natural, and eco-friendly, “green” is one of those buzzword terms that’s hard to pin down to one definition. For the purposes of this article, I’m using GreenRetailDecision's definition, which states a green retail product "has qualities that will protect the environment," and "has replaced artificial ingredients with natural ingredients." Hopefully there are strict legal guidelines in the future so it is clear what's truly green versus "green washed" marketing.
The products below are definitely fall under the "green" definition, with most also being vegan, cruelty-free, and organic as well. Just because Black Friday is a giant consumer holiday doesn't mean you can't get amazing deals on products that aren't frequently sold at major retail stores. Hopefully you fall in love with the list below and it inspires you to find even more green beauty products!
