Trustees Of The Reservations Promote 'Green Friday' Instead Of Black Friday

IPSWITCH, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — While Black Friday is typically a day filled with shopping, a group of environmentalists hopes to change it to “Green Friday.”

The Trustees of the Reservation created Green Friday to combat the consumer culture of Black Friday, encouraging residents to get outside and enjoy nature. Nature Engagement Manager at the Trustees of the Reservation’s Crane Estate Val Perini was leading guided hikes on Friday morning.

“You might have hosted family, you’ve been in the house for a couple of days. Get outside, bring the family, or come on your own. Just connect with nature a bit as part of your holiday self-care,” said Perini.

Perini said holidays can be exhausting, so it is important to give your body some fresh air.

“The stores will still be there, so take a break, hit the trails, get some nature therapy and then you can go back to your retail therapy after that,”
