Why Cyber Monday is Greener than Black Friday

Cyber Monday is the Monday after Thanksgiving during which online retailers have huge sales. The online sales are a great alternative to the crowded chaos that is Black Friday. Plus, Cyber Monday is more eco-friendly. Here's why:

-In store purchases account for 15x the amount of GHG emissions caused by online purchases. (data from 2010).

-When shopping online it is easier to compare company values and purchase from a socially and environmentally ethical company.

-No paper coupons needed.

-Easy to use promo codes from twitter and other social media sites.
