Have you decided to wait to go shopping on Black Friday and Cyber Monday? You are not alone! The most important shopping event of the year is becoming more and more popular and consequently the CO2 emissions resulting from the production, shipping and delivery of the items increase.
So, what can you do to reduce the ecological impact of purchases made during Black Friday? A few simple tricks are enough to keep in mind during the offer period. Read on to find out what our tips are for reducing your carbon footprint as much as possible.
1. Do not choose the one-day shipping method
Many Amazons’ Prime subscribers know the convenience of receiving ordered items within 24 hours of payment. However, Climate Lab points out that these hasty deliveries are mostly done with diesel vehicles and are less efficiently organized than slower deliveries. This also increases CO2 emissions, so choosing a longer delivery option can be a first step in helping the planet (and saving some too). In our personal opinion, never select one day delivery. We all know that on this day every seller gets huge orders as compare to the normal day. So, no need to be in hurry. Just place your order wisely by selecting standard delivery time option. By doing this seller can easily manage your order.
2. Make your purchases all together, possibly from Italian retailers
If you have five different items on your list to buy, make sure you get it from as few e-shops as possible. This will serve to reduce the mobilization of trucks, planes, and other freight vehicles. If you can make all your purchases from one site, even better.
Buying from foreign sites could also trigger a series of long, costly, and environmentally unfriendly delivery journeys. Better to buy what you need from Italian retailers, especially if it is bulky products like a TV. It may cost you a little more, but it is the best option.

3. Think twice before replacing something
Do you really need a new smartphone, computer or 4K TV? If you only bought a new model last year, or if you have an older one that still works great, you may want to avoid buying a new one.
New models that come out on a yearly basis usually have minimal improvements. Better save for when you really need a new item to replace the old one due to malfunctions. In that case it will also be easier to appreciate the leap in quality and you will know that you have invested your money in the best possible way.
4. Try to repair instead of replacing
Why buy a new model when you can repair the one you already have? The great thing about computers is that you can replace individual components. If you have broken your smartphone screen, luckily it is full of specialized shops ready to fix it.
We once witnessed the scene of a guy throwing an iPhone in the garbage for a scratch on the screen. Please be better than that.
So, at the end of this I would like to add something very simple and common and that is, if you are making your mind to buy something, then do proper research. Don’t need to go always for cheaper, sometimes you must invest very carefully. With this little sense you can easily escape of replacing issue.
5. Think of a plan
Let’s be honest, there are so many good Black Friday deals every year that it’s impossible not to feel pressured. Knowing what you want in advance and thinking about what you need (for example a Bluetooth speaker or a new iPad) will help you not to succumb to the temptation of impulsive (and compulsive) shopping. You don’t need to buy dozens of frivolities to fill your house with, without even knowing where to put them. So, again and again in everything planning is very important. If you Guys will not think about the planning then, you can’t achieve anything in your life.
So, the above guide shared with all the readers after doing some research. I hope everyone will like our effort which we have done for those who want to get maximum from the upcoming big event. We always see, on the event day mostly people confused and wasting their time in price comparisons. Due to this, they always miss lots of opportunities like if they will stick in a product price comparison then, how they will go for other products?
Same as mostly think that they will start shopping in the evening of black Friday. But it is also a bad practice too as we saw many times that the products gone out of stock. So, be active whether you are going to buy laptops on this 2021 black Friday or any other computer peripherals, just keep this in your mind which we said above, prepare your plan and act accordingly to get maximum on this Black Friday 2021.
