Why Boards360 is embracing Green Friday
Green Friday is a kick back against the rampant consumerism of Black Friday. The
idea is to encourage environmentally conscious purchases and healthy lifestyles instead of mindless mass consumption – something we can definitely get on board with.
Did you know Black Friday wasn’t even a thing in the UK as recently as 2010?
Amazon imported it from the good ole USA. Now it’s a firmly established event in our retail calendar. Its arrival is the klaxon that sounds the beginning of the Christmas shopping period.
From high end luxury labels to cheap ‘n’ cheerful brands; everyone gets in on the
commercial feeding frenzy. We’re not getting heavy. We all like a bargain. But more stuff we don’t need, or really even want, just means more emissions, packaging and waste choking up our environment.
With world leaders failing to deliver the radical changes needed to protect our planet and its most vulnerable people, we believe it’s down to each of us to do the little things we can. Because millions of small steps can add up to a big leap forward. So, what are we asking?
Re-connect with nature
Turn your back on Black Friday. Yeah, we said it. You don’t need that gadget
anyway. Get out into nature instead and enjoy our amazing planet. Whether you’re a surfer, paddleboarder, or beach lover - do your thing, have some fun and leave no trace. It’s a great way to de-stress and re-charge.
Consider products that are kinder to our planet
We’ve pulled together a collection of products that have sustainability at their heart. We’ve always been about high quality kit for board riders and beach lovers. And when that kit comes with a low environmental impact too – well, that’s a win, win right? Treat yourself, or pick up a gift for someone that they’ll actually want.

Our range of Garmin smartwatches use solar power to charge-as-you-go giving a longer-lasting battery that only needs plugging in to the mains every 56 days (no. of days differs per model). It will track your Heart Rate, VOX levels, Surfing, Paddleboarding, Running, Biking and pretty much any other activity. It will also give you tide times, GPS data and all the notifications from email, text, call, social media you want (or don't want if you turn them off).
Buy once, Buy well
