Green Monday

Green Monday in
Days to go: 

Green Monday is an online sales event that marks one of the busiest shopping days of the year for internet retailers in America. Infused with eco-friendly consciousness and consumerism, the phrase "Green Monday" is coined, relating to both the green of dollars and the green of environmentalism. The day is filled with deals and bargain opportunities on numerous online platforms, promoting an environmentally aware approach to holiday shopping by reducing in-store traffic and consequent carbon emissions.

The term was first used by online retail giant eBay in 2007 to describe its best sales day in December, driven by the last-minute shopping rush. Over time, other major retail players enthusiastically embraced this concept, transforming Green Monday into a business-wide event marked by major sales and promotions. While initially an eBay-specific term, it now spans across numerous online retail platforms, each contributing their own deals and discounts.

Green Monday has garnered a reputation as an opportunity for online retailers to offer substantial discounts and for consumers to finalize their holiday purchases, all while contributing to a more sustainable shopping method. The shopping event typically occurs on the second Monday of December, serving as a reminder for people to finalize their online Christmas shopping to ensure timely delivery.
