Green Friday: Growing Trees, Not Discounts

The story usually goes like this: you need bedding and towels, but you hold out on taking the plunge because the lure of those Black Friday Discounts are just too strong. Then the day comes and all that’s on offer are the colours you hate and the sizes you don't need. Sound familiar?

Fair Prices All Year Round

Those sheets and towels that are 25% off in the sale? It’s our belief that they’re overpriced for the rest of the year. Kind of like those 330 day a year offers that you see in your local supermarket. Not cool, and kidding no-one.
At Bedfolk we refuse to over-inflate our prices to account for flash sales because we believe in keeping our margins low all year round. Which means you can always buy our luxury bedding and bath collection at an attainable price – and become bed-folk when it works for you.

Growing Trees, Not Discounts

We don’t believe in sales, but we do believe in minimising our ecological footprint. So this weekend, rather than taking part in Black Friday (or Cyber Monday, or what-ever-it’s-called Tuesday), we’ll be taking a stand and planting trees instead. Black Friday just went Green.

Green Friday: How It Works

For every order over £99 that we sell between Friday 26th – Monday 29th November we’ll be planting a tree - in the UK - in partnership with our chosen environmental charity Trees For Life. For full transparency, this costs us around £5 per tree. So far, we've planted more than 700 trees. You can check out the Bedfolk Grove in the Scottish Highlands here

Why We're Planting Trees

As well as championing the ‘buy once, buy well’ mentality, we’re always looking for ways to reduce the ecological impact of making and selling our beddinglayers and bath collection, including minimising the air miles in our supply chain (all our products are made in Portugal and Turkey), cutting out all the plastic in our packaging, and delivering with DPD (who run a carbon neutral delivery service).
Now we’re going one step further by looking to offset (as well as reduce) our use of the world’s limited ecological resources. We’ll be looking to roll out this programme (or something similar) full time in the future.

Wind Down Whilst Feeling Good

You can shop confidently from Bedfolk all year round knowing you’re getting the highest quality products, at the lowest possible prices, and that we’re doing our fullest to minimise our impact on the world.
