Your Complete Guide To Labor Day Sales From Sustainable Brands In 2023
It’s the unofficial end of summer—where did time go? Labor Day in the US, first celebrated in 1882, marks the recognition of the workers who put in long hours to progress our lives—and our economy—forward. Needless to say, though, we still have a long way to go for labor and income equality.
But this week also means that we’re seeing sales cropping up everywhere—from storefronts to websites, many brands use this moment for promotion before the holidays. But, it also means prices are more accessible, which means more folks can access higher-priced sustainable and durable goods. Because finding more sustainable choices on a smaller budget can be difficult, and we’ve found seasonal sales to be one of the most helpful approaches. So, if there’s a product that’s long been on your wishlist, or in need of replacement, we’ve gathered the best deals from our favorite sustainable brands.
Below you’ll find a list of the sales you can find over the coming weekend—be sure to note the start and end dates of the sales you want to shop. (The most deals will be live from September 1st through the 4th.) We encourage you to use this list as a reference for goods you were already planning to buy. If you have a specific brand or item in mind, skip all the rest and hit Ctrl+F or ⌘+F on desktop to search the page for what you want. (If you’re on mobile here’s how to find on page on Apple and Android devices.) We’ve also put brands in alphabetical order under their respective categories so you can find the brand you want quickly!
Wherever your celebrations take you (or don’t take you) this Labor Day, may you take a moment to support your neighbors in the workforce who may not have the day off, or who may be facing underpayment, under- or unemployment, or mistreatment. We all deserve fair, living wages, no matter where we live or what industry we work in.
