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.

We think this is a better way to spend £83 and one that you won't regret!

Our Sustainability

May 24, 2021

Being sustainable does not have to mean completely changing our life. It does not mean that we must live a completely zero waste life, never buy new, and go vegan. If we can do these things then that is amazing. But often, we just simply aren’t able to do everything.

Eating Sustainably: Recipes & Slow Cooking
Eating Sustainably: Recipes & Slow Cooking

May 07, 2021

Slow cooking is cooking in a way that reflects the slow living mindset: it is cooking in a way that is mindful of the planet and sustainability. It is a practise that connects us with ourselves, our family, our local area, and the natural world around us. It is creating something from scratch and viewing it as a hobby rather than as a repetitive, time-consuming task.
