Black Friday Alternatives

Ways we can be / do instead of feeding into the frenzied consumption of Black Friday:

  • Donate to a non-profit / organization that is aligned with your values / goals
  • Spend an hour picking up litter in your area
  • Give away things you don’t need
  • Ask others if they have anything to share they may not need, that you are looking for
  • Presence > presents
  • Mend something that needs repairing 
  • Name aloud 5 things why you love to choose to be yourself
  • Spend time WITH Nature, AS Nature
  • Volunteer your time with an elder in your life
  • Step into a ritual where you invite the spirits to share their vision of abundance, and your role within it
  • Cast a spell that reinforces a restorative, circular economy, starting with yourself, however small
