Introducing Allbirds: Break Tradition, Not the Planet

As the Holiday season rapidly approaches, shoppers begin to indulge in the trading frenzy without thinking twice about whether those Christmas gifts are really doing much good once purchased. Allbirds is setting out to change the game, asking customers to ‘Pay it to the Planet’ and controversially raising prices on Black Friday to combat Climate Change. On November 27th, all prices across the entire Allbirds range will increase by $1 and will be matched 100% from Allbirds with the additional proceeds going directly to Fridays For Future, the youth-led international climate movement founded by climate activist Greta Thunberg. What better time to start shopping consciously than Black Friday?
