Black Friday, a tradition started in America. It's the first Friday after Thanksgiving that sparks the beginning of the Christmas season. It has become more popular this decade as the day to get your Christmas present deals and is known to be utterly chaotic!
To give you an idea of exactly how chaotic, it is estimated Brits spent approximately £6 billion last year with more expected in 2020.
Fast Forward to 2020, a turbulent year, I think everyone would agree, and the first (and hopefully last), black Friday with the nation in lockdown. Although shoppers will be unable to physically utilise the day, it is expected to be just as big online. Online purchases however have consequences for the environment, particularly the packaging.
