Black Friday with a Clean Conscience

Posted on Fri, Nov 23, 2012 at 12:46 PM

Today's that day that everyone freaks out about. Black Friday.

Madness.
  • NJ Star-Ledger
  • Madness.

By now surely all of us are aware of its alternative, National Buy Nothing Day, a protest against the consumer-driven day of holiday sales. We're also hip to its off-shoots, like why it should be called Jdimytai Damour Day. Click the link if you need a reminder. People go crazy on Black Friday.
If you must shop today, use the meticulously curated, socially responsible/environmentally sensitive/non-violent short list below. If there are other interesting local events we should know about, leave us a friendly comment.
