Cyber Monday Meets Green Gift Monday 11.28.11


This year, Cyber Monday and Green Gift Monday have converged on November 28, 2011. What’s Green Gift Monday all about? Last year, in an effort to promote conscious gifting rather than indiscriminate spending, The Nature Conservancy christened Cyber Monday = Green Gift Monday.

Not a bad idea, considering in 2009 consumers spent nearly $890 million bucks online on Cyber Monday. That’s a lot of consumer power...think: Triple Bottom Line – people, planet, profit.


As if holiday shopping weren’t complicated enough, let’s not forget about Green Tuesday, November 29. Between November 29 – December 6, will be offering a slew of special discounts on various eco-friendly items that have been approved by Green America.

Spend your green with companies that care about you and the planet. Support companies who donate to worthy causes. Spread good karma and make merry this holiday season.

There are also eco-conscious companies who are finding ways to do those three things -reduce, reuse, and recycle – and to ensure they employ earth-friendly practices in their manufacturing processes. Anjolee – who has been a leader in manufacturing jewelry since 1977 – is one such company. (more…)
