Black Friday Rebellion – Join us in the Green Friday Movement and turn your Happy Herb purchases into a gift for a better world. Together we will be feeding the homeless, regenerating our native bushlands, and supporting you, our valued customers, to start your own herbal healing garden.
Why don’t we like Black Friday?? The term “Black Friday” was coined in the 1960s to mark the beginning of the Christmas shopping season. It has since evolved to be the biggest shopping day of the year, with over $11.9 billion in online sales on Black Friday 2019. How much of that was ‘Made in China’ and now sitting in a landfill?
The promise for high revenue has resulted in excessive waste and unnecessary consumerism, with companies creating new products specifically for Black Friday, using extra shipping resources, materials, and unnecessary waste, etc. This makes us sad, and as a retailer, we take a risk by taking a stand against this, but we choose to shine a light on a better way and encourage you to join us in sharing this message.
Black Friday is appealing because everyone loves that feeling of getting something for nothing, but what if you could do this AND enhance your footprint on the world! So we have come up with a very special week of giving.
We are inviting you to elevate your consciousness and join us in the Green Friday Movement, where every transaction aims to improve your environmental footprint and care for humankind. Instead of offering discounts for each sale, we are offering you an opportunity to contribute to a better world.
Starting on Tuesday, November 24th for a whole 7 days, you will get to choose which one of the following gifts you would like us to donate on your behalf.
Plant A Tree
We have partnered with an Australian biodiversity organization that specialises in native trees and regeneration.For every order, we will plant one tree.
Feed The Homeless
At home in the Northern Rivers where our Happy HQ resides, we are working closely with a local community group that cooks and hand delivers vegetarian food to our homeless shelters. We will donate an extra meal for every purchase that selects this option.
Start Your Own Healing Herb Garden
Choose this option and you will receive with your order a packet of California poppy seeds to start your very own herbal healing garden. We have chosen calendula because it’s an easy cheerful flowering herb that just keeps on giving. An excellent herbal helper that is most revered for its skin and digestive healing.
