Shoppers who want to save green – and be greener – during the holiday season are the focus of a major new push by the nonprofit Green America to make the Tuesday after every Thanksgiving “Green Tuesday.”
To kick off this new annual holiday shopping tradition, Green America’s GreenDeals.org website will be offering special deals for the week starting on the first “Green Tuesday” (November 29, 2011).
Much like Groupon does for general shoppers, GreenDeals.org offers discounts and deals from local and national green online businesses that are approved by Green America. GreenDeals.org features a new deal or discount every 24-48 hours.
