At Beflamboyant, we believe in slow living, enjoying the small moments and finding a balance between impulsive desire and thoughtful consumption.
It's time to taste experiences and not material things!
The idea behind "don't devour Black Friday" it's simple: instead of falling into the trap of impulsive consumption, take a moment to think about what you really need.
Sometimes, less is more, and small moments of happiness outweigh the accumulation of material things.
From Beflamboyant we invite you to taste life, take things slowly and find a balance. Together, we can be part of the change.
Don't devour Black Friday if:
- You like the slower, but intense life.
- You value quality over quantity.
- You prefer to enjoy experiences rather than accumulate objects.
- You believe in moderation and avoid excesses.
- You care about environmental impact and look for sustainable products.
- You avoid spending on unnecessary products.
- You prioritise conscious purchasing decisions over impulse purchases.
- You want to encourage a more thoughtful consumer approach.
If you don't devour Black Friday means that you taste the moments, enjoy a minimalist life and look for happiness in experiences and not in material things.
The 8 benefits of not devouring Black Friday
- Reflexive shopping: Say goodbye to impulse purchases and hello to more reflexive shopping decisions. By doing this, you not only save money, but also buy products that you really need and appreciate.
- Prioritising quality: You value quality over quantity, which leads you to purchase more durable products.
- Less accumulation of objects: You reduce the amount of unnecessary things in your home and avoid accumulation.
- Highlight sustainability: Black Friday is the perfect opportunity to practice sustainability in your shopping choices. Opting for eco-friendly, durable and ethical products is not only a trend, but a long-term commitment to the well-being of the planet and future generations.
- Less waste: Choosing not to buy products that are likely to end up in the trash is an effective way to reduce waste accumulation. Every time you choose not to make an unnecessary purchase, you contribute to reducing waste and easing the burden on landfills and oceans.
- Contribution to positive environmental impact: When you opt for sustainable products instead of single-use or low-quality products, you are contributing to reducing the ecological footprint related to production and transport. This more conscious approach can make a big difference in conserving resources and reducing carbon emissions.
- Keep financial stress at bay: Impulsive shopping during Black Friday can create unnecessary financial stress. By avoiding rampant consumerism, you avoid spending on products you don't really need and can instead focus your money on what really matters.
- Conscious consumption: Choosing not to devour Black Friday is an act of consumer awareness. It encourages you to make informed choices instead of being seduced by irresistible deals that often end up piling up unnecessary products in your home.
Some sustainable alternatives to Black Friday
- Take advantage of significant dates for necessary purchases: Significant dates, such as Christmas or birthdays, can be great times to buy the things you really need. Instead of receiving traditional gifts, you can ask for items that are useful and in line with your needs, such as winter clothing, electronic devices or sports equipment. This helps to ensure that gifts don't accumulate with unnecessary items and become something that really helps you in your day-to-day life.
- Second-hand sales: Another alternative to Black Friday is to take advantage of second-hand sales. In many cases, second-hand items such as clothing, furniture and electronics are offered at much lower prices than their new counterparts. This option allows you to buy quality products at affordable prices and helps to reduce production demand and waste of resources.
- Exchange markets: Participating in exchange markets is an effective way to reduce waste. At these events, you can exchange items you no longer use for things you need more of. This promotes reuse and waste reduction, as items change hands rather than being thrown away. It is a sustainable and economical way of acquiring new items.
- Give away items in good condition: When you buy something new, consider giving away items that are in good condition instead of throwing them away. You can donate clothes to charity, offer electronics devices you no longer need to friends or family, or even sell items online. This ensures that useful items continue to be used and don't end up in landfills.
- Seasonal shopping: Take advantage of the change of season to buy clearance or discounted products. For example, buy summer clothes at the end of summer or winter coats at the end of the cold season.
- The 3 R's, reduce, reuse and recycle: Instead of buying new things, consider repairing or maintaining items you already own. This prolongs their useful life and reduces the need to buy replacements.

At Beflamboyant, we are proud to offer you this choice and to be part of the solution for a more sustainable future.
Why don't we support Green Friday?
Green Friday is still consumerism in disguise: "Green Friday" often does little more than cloak consumerism in a cloak of sustainability.
The offers and promotions can lead to unnecessary purchases. It's the pressure to buy on Green Friday that's why we skip green and black. We're just Friday lovers.
