Give the gift of a good night’s sleep with My Green Mattress
The perfect formula for a great green gift is something eco-friendly (obviously), durable and practical with a touch of luxury (without costing you a fortune). It should also be something that your intended recipient might not think to buy for themselves. Unless they are waking up with back pain every day, most people don’t think to replace their mattress. Surprise your loved ones with an organic, non-toxic mattress from My Green Mattress. Not only will this help them sleep better and breathe easier, but it is also a gift that keeps on giving — they’ll be thanking you for many years to come! Best of all, My Green Mattress is offering some incredible deals — up to $200 off your purchase — for Black Friday.
Stock up on $10 glass storage container sets at JCPenney

Glass provides a safer, more sustainable alternative that will last for years. These containers are great for packing lunches or meal prepping. At JCPenney on Black Friday, the prices for Pyrex storage container sets range from $9.99 to $14.99 (after a mail-in rebate).
Take $25 off a purchase of $100 or more at IKEA
If you didn’t know already, IKEA is actually a treasure trove of eco-friendly products. All of its lighting uses LEDs, and the company even offers several solar-powered lights. You can also find reusable zipping bags for food, handmade rugs and more than enough plants to turn your place into a paradise. IKEA is also working toward using 100 percent renewable energy, so it’s not a bad time to stock up on green products while saving money and supporting a sustainable company.

If you aren’t in the market for a smart thermostat, Lowe’s is also offering GE Smart Bulb Bundles for only $25 (originally $55).
