Event description
The Antagonist Event to Black Friday

About this Event

Join Wisebird & Collective Impact Journey for the antagonist event to Black Friday!

Avoid the lines & unnecessary packaging in malls by shopping at Green Sunday because...

#greenisthenewblack

Green Sunday aims to challenge and offer an alternative to Black Friday and mass corporate consumerism by holding space for equitable, transparent and mindful consumption. A space where every item has a story and isn’t contributing to the current climate crisis in the name of profit.

We are encouraging Torontonians to rethink the way they shop this holiday season by showing support for companies that operate with a social and environmental purpose by selling local, upcycled, reclaimed, repurposed, all-natural, eco-conscious, package-free, and ethical goods. 

In addition to the market vibe, there will be a local climate keynote by Rachel Parent, a makerspace, visual climate artists, zero-waste wrapping demos, a documentary film room, and the event will conclude with a local artist musical showcase for the final two hours!

It is meant to be a space to grab a drink, check out some cool art, purchase some cool and unique holiday gifts, listen to some great local music, and celebrate the work we're all doing toward climate justice!

When: Sunday, December 8, 2019
