Support Local with Green Friday
Posted on: Mon, 09 November, 2020
Give the Gift of Giving with the Go Anywhere Gift Card and Support Irish businesses
The #GreenFriday is an initiative that aims to combat Black Friday mass consumerism by supporting local businesses. The goal is to mobilize the people of Ireland to work towards a stronger, more stable local economy so that communities can thrive sustainably.
The shopping day known as Black Friday will attract more than one-third of Irish consumers, with around a quarter of them using the occasion to buy up to half of their Christmas gifts.
A study on behalf of PwC Ireland shows that the average spend over the Black Friday/Cyber Monday period in Ireland will be €251 per consumer. A separate survey by the Marketing Institute of Ireland shows that a total of €250m will be spent by Irish shoppers on Black Friday. When you spend €100 with Irish Businesses it's worth €500 to the Irish Economy.
Irish Hotels play a massive part in job creation but also its positive impact on the community and how it supports not just employees but small local businesses; farmers, butchers, florists and local sponsorships in sports and community groups which build social networks that can sustain entire communities.
There are many initiatives trying to get Irish consumers to support Irish businesses. We are thrilled to see the @IrishFoodChampions want to turn Black Friday to Green, getting #GreenFriday trending topic during November, giving a boost to Irish hospitality providers and food and beverage artisans.
Find here a list of some wholly Irish independent hotels where the Go Anywhere Gift Card can be redeemed and join the #GreenFriday trend by supporting them.
