Black Friday Waste

Have NO REGRETS this Black Friday

November 25, 2020

Safe to say here at Terra Neutra we're not huge fans of Black Friday, it being a prime example of wasteful, climate-damaging mass consumerism!

This year Black Friday and Cyber Monday spending in the UK is forecast to increase from £5.6 billion (2019) to £6 billion in 2020.*

UK shoppers are planning to spend £295.67 on average each, +18% (£44.47) more than 2019.*

More shopping =  more carbon emissions and more negative environmental impact. 

So we've decided to launch new product called ‘No Regrets’.  In 2018, 21% of Brits purchased something on Black Friday/Cyber Monday that they later regretted.*

They spent an estimated average of £83 on each of these items: that’s 1 in 5 people who bought something that they later realised they didn’t want and/or need.*

Our ‘No Regrets’ product costs £83 and will plant 361 trees in Madagascar which will sequester approx 36 tCO2e (tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent) across their lifetime.
Plant trees with Terra Neutra
We think this is a better way to spend £83 and one that you won't regret!

I think I accidentally fell into this pledge. I mentioned it to a friend as a thing I’d heard about. This friend loves fashion (her other passions are the news and politics and she used to run her own PR company so she’s no lightweight) and she is always immaculately dressed in a varying array of lovely clothes that are both fashionable and timeless at the same time.

Making The Most Of Spring: Gardening, Foraging, and Slow Living

We are now firmly into April, the days are longer and brighter, the weather is getting warmer, and the gardens all around us are beginning to burst with colour. Daffodils, primroses, blossom, and magnolia are just some of the flowers that have been coming back and bringing more joy to our walks. It’s that time when the sun feels inviting, and the thought of stepping outside into the garden is welcome.
