The Best Black Friday Deals of 2020

Save money and save the planet when you score eco-friendly items on sale

Our editors independently research, test, and recommend the best products; you can learn more about our review process here. We may receive commissions on purchases made from our chosen links.

As Black Friday and Cyber Monday have come and gone, we’ve stopped updating this post with sales and can’t promise the ones below are still available. Check back later this year for updated deals.

It's Black Friday, and while some may choose to abstain from the annual event to reduce consumption and boycott overproduction, there's no reason you can't take advantage of deals on items you have already determined you need. Several ethical, eco-friendly brands are hosting sales, with some brands even opting for "anti-Black Friday" or "anti-Cyber Monday" events, encouraging mindful purchases, pausing sales, or donating a portion to charity.

As with any purchasing decision, it's important to carefully consider your actual need for the item and any reuse-and-reduce alternatives. Buying nothing will always be cheaper, greener, and more ethical, but there are items on the market that help support a sustainable lifestyle. Ahead are the best deals on eco-friendly products and sustainable clothing. Check back, as we'll be adding new items as they go on sale.

When is Black Friday and Cyber Monday?

Black Friday 2020's official date is November 27. As in previous years, the annual shopping event follows Thanksgiving, with Cyber Monday slated for November 30. However, you can expect to see deals even sooner as retailers attempt to reduce crowds and shipping delays.

Should I worry about Cyber Monday shipping delays?

It's a good idea to start shopping for the holidays as early as possible this year so that you can ensure your packages arrive on time. A surge of orders could impact shipping times.

What retailers are doing Cyber Monday deals?

Predictably, Amazon, Walmart, and Target are hosting sales this year, with Target also price-matching through December 24, 2020. Several sustainable shops are also featuring markdowns, including Coyuchi and Boll & Branch for bedding, Grove Collaborative for home essentials, and Made Trade for gifts.

All prices and discounts were accurate at the time of publishing and may have since changed.
