Our Complete 2021 Guide to Ethical and Sustainable Black Friday and Cyber Monday Sales

This post contains some affiliate links, which means if you make a purchase, EcoCult receives a small percentage of the sale price. Some brands may have paid a small fee to be featured. We only recommend brands that we truly believe in. Support our editorial work by supporting them!

There’s a bit of an anti-Black Friday movement that exists within the ethical/sustainable world, with some brands choosing not to participate in the tradition. Honestly, we get it. Black Friday has gotten ridiculously out of control, and it’s reflective of much larger, very important issues of consumerism, capitalism, and how we’re taught by society to find our value in more stuff. So if the idea of Black Friday goes completely against a brand’s ethos and they decide not to participate, no hard feelings.

At the same time, there’s an element of Black Friday campaigns that we support. Not everyone has the means to purchase ethically-made gifts at full price, especially when they have multiple people to shop for around the holidays. The way we see it, holiday shopping doesn’t have to be excessive, and Cyber Week can be a really great opportunity for income-constrained people to purchase a few ethically made goods at more accessible price points, plus introduce your loved ones to some of your favorite brands. Because you know they’ll love them! Hopefully, with these sales, you’ll have a little extra money in your pocket to donate to a non-profit.

Plus, there’s a reason why so many brands participate —  it’s good for their bottom line! Sustainable fashion businesses need to be sustainable in terms of revenue as well. So we don’t begrudge them at all.

This is just the beginning of our Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday, and Giving Tuesday promotions, discounts, and give-back campaigns. As more details come in, we’ll be adding to this list as the week goes on, so bookmark and circle back! Note that the bold text denotes EcoCult exclusive promotions that you’ll only find here.

Happy holidays!
