What is Green Monday?
If you love bargains and discounts, you’ve probably heard of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. If, for some odd reason, you missed it this year, no worries. There’s another lesser-known bargain day coming called Green Monday to sort your last min gift shopping.
Green Monday is considered the third biggest sale online and the biggest sale in December. So it is a shopping day saviour for workaholics (who don’t have time to shop) and shopaholics (who have all the time to shop).
Some of the biggest brands tend to offer great deals on Green Monday, with prices that can match their Black Friday and Cyber Monday offers.
When is Green Monday?
Mark your calendars; Green Monday is on December 12, 2023. It falls every second Monday of December with at least ten days before Christmas, giving people time to order last minute gifts for shipping before Christmas Day.
What does Green Monday mean?
The ‘Green’ in Green Monday doesn’t serve any sustainability reference. However, it doesn’t mean we should go crazy and buy unnecessary gifts simply because it’s on sale or sold at a fraction of the price. Instead, the ‘Green’ refers to money people will save thanks to discounts in the panicky run-up to Christmas.
Did you know the average amount spent on unwanted gifts is £41? Over 21 million Brits receive a gift they don’t want, totalling over £5 billion that’s often regifted, donated or thrown into the bin!
Surprisingly, 1 in 10 of us have deliberately bought someone a gift we knew they wouldn’t like. Let’s be better than this. Don’t be part of these statistics.
