How to Have a More Sustainable Black Friday

Learn how to turn your Black Friday into ♻️Green Friday♻️ by saving money AND the planet today!

Did you know the biggest shopping day of the year also has a big impact on the Planet due to higher production and shipping? When Black Friday deals drop there’s no reason we should drop our love for Earth too. Turn Black Friday into Green Friday by shopping the Curtsy way. Here’s how to find great deals that make a small impact on your wallet and the Planet. 

👋 Shop second hand (*cough-cough* CURTSY)

Spend Black Friday right by saving money AND the planet when you thrift shop. What’s your favorite online thrift store and why is it Curtsy 😉? There’s no better place to #extendthetrend and shop looks you love without all the guilt. Plus, every day feels like Black Friday with daily deals on the Curtsy app.

🛍 Support small & local 

This year it’s more important than ever to shop small, because many small businesses are feeling the impact of the pandemic. Show your support by shopping locally at a boutique or online at Etsy. Small shops offer just as great of deals as the big guys.

💚 Shop eco-conscious brands

We see major red flags when a brand is afraid of commitment (to us and the Planet). This weekend shop responsibly from the below list of eco-conscious brands we admire.

Girlfriend-collective (30% off everything)
Galerie.La (Buy one get one 30% off all clothing)
Able (25% off site-wide)
Naadam (40% Off)
Wild cosmetics (25% off site-wide)
Pact (25% Off)
Parade (40% Off)
Whimsy and Row (Up to 75% off )
Tentree (up to 50% off)
Levi’s (40% off + free shipping)
Aday (up to 30% off select styles)

✔️Keep calm and shop smart 

Impulse buys are fun, but knowing you took your time to find the best deal on what you actually need can be even better. This year make a list of what you need before you start shopping so you don’t gobble up every sale you see.

👯‍♀️Shopping in person? Buddy up!

Have plans to add fresh finds to an IRL shopping cart? Invite a wingman to your in-person adventure and carpool from store to store. Plus, don’t forget to bring along your reusable tote for your new items. The Planet will thank you!

Now Hiring on Your Campus

👋🏼 What’s Curtsy?

At Curtsy, we’ve re-imagined how you shop for and sell your clothes. We’re working everyday to use our platform to keep fashion out of landfills and give apparel a second life. We’re making it easy for you to buy and sell your clothes, shoes, and accessories online and through our app

At Curtsy we value integrity, boldness, and community. We’re dreamers, thinkers, doers, and achievers. We meld old-school tradition with new-school disruption. We want to be THE go-to for sustainable fashion, and it takes bold action, challenging the status quo, and delivering a wow customer experience. 

So far we’ve kept over two million items out of landfills and helped our community earn over $30M through giving their clothes a second life. Together we work hard, we dream big, and we look great doing it. 

We started Curtsy in the Tri Delt house Ole Miss. Today we’re a small but mighty team with an office in downtown San Francisco. We’re still a small startup and are looking for people just as fun and lively to join the team! Read on for more deets! 👇🏼
