And it begins! The Christmas madness. Along with it, Black Friday.
This year Starboard is joining 180 French campaigns and organizations to #MakeFridayGreenAgain, but Starboard is adding a little twist. Instead of promoting over consumerism and wastefulness by sharing product discounts, Starboard wants you to go out there and enjoy the day on the water with your friends. The twist is, we are endorsing a Blue Friday, celebrating our love for our great big blue – on our paddleboards!
No matter where you are in the world, take a step outdoors, wrap up warm or slap on the sunscreen. Enjoy the nature around you. Take in the deep breaths of that fresh air and be happy that you are not in the hustle and bustle of a busy store fighting for items you may not necessarily need.
Taking Blue Friday a step further.
This Christmas, your gifting can be made more eco-friendly. Select gifts that are locally made from sustainable natural resources; such as sustainable natural soaps, shampoos and sunscreens. Or even search for upcycled items. Better yet, give the gift of the outdoors and plan to enjoy nature days together.
The earth is currently being squeezed for raw materials and suffocated with CO2 emissions to make new products, keeping up with the demand that is created when items are bought. With your choices, you can support the production of sustainable products.
Every choice you make can hinder or help heal our earth and oceans. Make each decision you make count towards the future.
Make your Friday count, see you on the water on Friday 29th November. AKA Blue Friday.
