As noted here before I skip Black Friday each year. I don’t love how Black Friday pushes consumers to buy, buy buy and it's not very eco-friendly either. Plus I honestly do not believe it saves you any money. That said, IF you have to shop on Black Friday, at least you can try to make it eco-friendly. Shipping can be a nightmare for your carbon footprint unless you shop from somewhere that offsets, but on Black Friday all that time wasted idling in traffic can also kill your carbon footprint so your best bet is to skip the lines and look for online deals. Online gives you a much better chance to find eco-friendly products as well since most brick and mortar stores still lack a decent eco-friendly collection of goods.

Following are some of the better green Black Friday deals I've seen around…
