Turn Black Friday green!

"Black Friday" sounds kind of scary... and if you head to the mall it really can be. So maybe you've decided to avoid the crowds? Going online will save your feet--and probably your patience--but will it save a wolverine or a forest full of old-growth cedar?

Don't forget: Shop REI online here and wildlife get 5%!

"Black Friday" sounds kind of scary... and let's face it, the whole darn month can be terrifying if you head to the mall. So maybe you've decided to avoid the crowds? Going online will save your feet--and probably your patience--but will it save a wolverine or a forest full of old-growth cedar?

It will if you use your holiday spirit superpowers to turn Black Friday green! 

Without leaving your chair, you can donate or shop online for gear from our store or even REI.com!

Tuesday November 27th has been declared Giving Tuesday by non-profits across the US! It's a great day to make a gift in honor of your favorite hiker or wildlife lover. We'll send them a card for you, too! Learn more about #GivingTuesday

On Black Friday 2011, Americans spent more than $52 billion dollars, averaging $400 per person in a single day. Imagine the difference we could make if even a fraction of that money was spent on responsible, meaningful holiday gifts, or even on direct donations to good causes!

Well, I imagine that Conservation Northwest could bring wilderness and working lands to the Columbia Highlands. I imagine that we could make sure Washington learns to live with predators, restoring our wild ecosystems to their full potential. And I imagine that lynx could float across snow and powerful elk browse the valley bottoms from the Rockies all the way to the coast as we connect and protect the region's most amazing places.

That's a pretty good outcome for simply shifting some of your holiday giving from stuff to substance, yes? Your gift to Conservation Northwest this holiday will make that happen!

Of course, you may still need something to put under the tree!
  • Get gear: Our online store has lots of great gear and gift membership packages to choose from. Use coupon code GREEN2012 through #GivingTuesday (Nov. 27) for free shipping on all orders of $30 or more!
