Join our Green Friday movement

Does your organisation want to make a statement against Black Friday? So that together, we can fight the enormous overconsumption taking place on this day? Join our Green Friday movement! Together we say 'no' to Black Friday deals and instead, give back trees to the earth.

Join our Green Friday movement

On Green Friday, we make a statement against Black Friday: on this day we’re all bombarded with glaring discounts and cheap deals. Black Friday massively reinforces impulse buying and overconsumption – habits that rapidly deplete the earth’s resources.

At Trees for All, we believe things can be different – and most importantly, must be different. That’s why on Black Friday, we’re going for Green Friday. We’re encouraging companies and consumers to invest in a greener planet. How? By buying and selling sustainable and second-hand products. By getting things repaired or recycling them. And by giving something back to the earth: trees for the Green Friday Forest!

Donate your trees for the Green Friday Forest

You can donate trees until December 1. Want to participate in Green Friday as a consumer? Then click here.

The Green Friday Forest Event

On November 25th, we’ll host the first ever Green Friday Forest Event. If you decide to donate your trees to the Green Friday Forest, you’ll get the unique opportunity to plant a tree yourself.

  • Location: Roosendaal area (Noord-Brabant)
  • Timeslots: you can choose between two timeslots. From 10.00 to 13.00 and from 13.00 to 16.00.
  • Transportation: there will be shuttle buses from Roosendaal train station to the event. We want to make sure the event is as sustainable as possible, so if possible, come by train.
  • Capacity: the spots to plant in the Green Friday Forest are limited, so be quick. Good to know: planting trees in the forest yourself is not mandatory. You could also simply start your Green Friday initiative or event and donate trees for the Green Friday Forest.

Since climate change is a worldwide issue, for each tree that is planted in the Green Friday Forest, one tree will be planted in one of our projects abroad.

Tips for your Green Friday initiative or campaign

  • Donate a percentage of your turnover for planting trees on Green Friday.

  • On Green Friday, plant a tree for each employee in your organisation or company.

  • Call on your customers, colleagues or contacts to donate money for trees, then match their
    donation.

  • Plant a tree for every person who signs up to your newsletter in the week of Green Friday. Or for every reaction to your Green Friday post on social media.

  • Set up your own activity through our activity platform and raise money. For example, get together with your colleagues for a race, cycle trip or walk and get sponsored for every kilometre.

  • Join your customers or colleagues in a green challenge. Opt for a car-free week, for example, and plant a tree for every colleague who comes to work by bike or public transport.

  • Create your own Green Friday product or service and plant trees for it. Examples are repair or
    recycling campaigns.

About the Green Friday movement

The Green Friday movement is an initiative from foundation Trees for All. As a foundation, our main goal is to strive towards a world with more forests. We do this by planting new forests and improving the conditions of existing forests. We are operating within the Netherlands and abroad in order to make a global impact. Because as we see it, without trees, there is no life on our planet.

Yet, on the journey towards a true green planet, we should do more than just planting trees. Lowering CO2 emissions, consuming and producing less products for example. With our Green Friday movement, we aim to create more awareness and fight overconsumption. In this way, we can improve climate conditions, biodiversity and healthy living circumstances for everyone.
