Black Friday deals make the biggest noise when the largest names, like Amazon, Walmart, Shein, or Zara, offer them. Those rarely have options for sustainable shopping, let alone discounts on those for Black Friday.
However, while avoiding large non-sustainable brand deals is easy, it might be harder for you to find sustainable shopping options for Black Friday. For this reason, we have put together this guide.
Here are our best sustainable shopping deals for Black Friday.
Black Friday sustainable shopping deals for
Rothy’s recycled plastic shoes
Rothy’s shoes are crafted using recycled materials, particularly plastic bottles. It may seem like a marketing ploy, but Rothy’s has greater ambitions. Achieving full circular production is a top priority for the company, and recycling is a crucial part of that goal.
Full circular production involves creating thread from recycled plastic and utilizing materials that can be easily reused or recycled, resulting in durable and easy-to-wash shoes.
If you like the concept, Rothy’s products are currently on sale, offering up to 50% discounts.
Frank and Oak recyclable denim
Frank and Oak’s Recyclable Denim is quite unique. The company’s strategy is simple: use organic and recycled cotton, avoid wasting water, and use dangerous dyes.
Considering the fashion industry is one of the world’s largest water consumers, Frank and Oak’s technology that reduces its water consumption by up to 95% is very important.
Sustainable shopping at Frank and Oak’s is discounted by up to 40% during Black Friday.

Kyrgies zero waste products
Kyrgies focuses on leather and wool fashion, but its commitment to sustainability doesn’t stop there. As the company puts it:
One of the best things [about wool] is that it’s extremely versatile. Any scrap of felt left over from making a pair of Kyrgies can be reprocessed and reused. Sometimes it’s used as extra padding in our Tengries or Molded Soles. Other times it’s reused as building insulation.
Kyrgies’ mainline product is a pair of house shoes they call Tengries. But while the company’s heart is in comfy shoes and slippers, their Black Friday deals apply to the whole line.
Lomi’s a sustainable compost machines
Compost machines are a great way to reduce food waste, especially for those with a garden. Composting lets you recycle the food you would waste into a rich soil nutrient instead. This process can help produce healthy vegetables and fruits, turning food waste into right into food again.
Composting doesn’t necessarily need a machine, but having one is an immense help. Traditional compost piles are a nice challenge for those who love gardening but might be too time-consuming for anyone else.
Lomi is for them. It makes composting easy with only a small carbon footprint. Even accounting for energy use, “Lomi can produce a net-lower carbon footprint than that same organic waste going to landfill.”
Lumi models are up to 50% off during Black Friday to sweeten the deal.
Compost piles offer the environmental benefits of a skip without any unnecessary hassle.
