Our 4th Annual Green Friday
Everyone likes a bargain, but did you know that shopping has a huge impact on the environment? Rather than Black Friday, we created Green Friday – keep reading to find out why and how to get the “greenest” Black Friday bike deals.
What is Two Wheel Gear’s Green Friday?
Our Green Friday sale is when we sell gently used, inspected gear and show samples at 50%-70% off. Whether it’s a pannier, handlebar bag, frame, or frame bag, or bike trunk bag – we make it easy for you to buy high quality used bike gear.
You get a great bike bag, all while giving repurposed bags a second chance keeping them out of the landfill – win-win! Mark your calendar for our Green Friday sale this November 26th from 5:00 AM until 11:59 PM.
What to Expect on our Green Friday Sale?
You can expect to find some great bargains. That means huge discounts on on all sorts of bike equipment, including panniers, bike bags, bike trunk bags, handlebar bags, and frame bike bags. But huge sales can come at a cost to the environment.
How are these Big Sales Impacting the Environment?
Black Friday is known as one of the most polluting days of the year, both in terms of greenhouse gas emissions and plastic waste from packaging. Anyone with environmentally sustainable goals can see the problem with this mass consumerism.
One big problem with widespread Black Friday sales is the temptation to buy something brand new and toss old gear in the garbage, even if it is still usable. Green Friday was created as a way to give great products a second life, keep them out of the landfill and give to a charity we love.
Why is Reducing Waste to Landfill a Goal?
We believe the last thing we need is more waste clogging our landfills. The reducing waste to landfill goal refers to our commitment to extend the lifecycle of our bike bags so that nothing goes to a landfill unless it is no longer usable.
Two Wheel Gear’s Sustainable Goals
At Two Wheel Gear, environmental sustainability is at the core of our company values. We are nature lovers and work to minimize our impact on the environment. Collecting and refurbishing products from our 30 day guarantee, trade show samples and customer returns allows us to improve the product life cycle and make them available again to our community as one of the ways we can meet our sustainable goals.
