Did you know that today is the biggest day of the year for online retailers? For some reason, for us it’s Monday. It’s not Black Friday. Of course, I’m sure there are exceptions to that rule, and it may change over time. But I think part of it (other than the discounts) has to do with being conscious of trying to enjoy Thanksgiving for what it is (a day of gratitude) not what it isn’t (the firing of the start gun in the race to Christmas).
This is the time of year when all merchants (both online and offline) find out whether or not we are going to make it through the year. So yes, this is a message to all of you: SHOP! Shopping is one of the most important things you can do to improve the economy. And if you want to improve the economy without destroying the environment, then you can choose to shop at places like Rodale’s (where today only you’ll receive 25% off your purchase + free shipping). Of course, we are not the only place that helps the whole planet when you shop. I wish every place where every person shopped took as much care about who makes their products, where the products come from, and what impact those choices have on your health and the environment.
When you shop responsibly, at places like Rodale’s, you know that your purchases will be supporting hard-working families, small businesses, companies that care deeply for their environmental impact and that care even more for your health. You get to enjoy the pleasure of shopping and giving knowing that your choices have a far-reaching positive impact. It’s a win-win situation. And isn’t that what the holiday spirit is all about?
Now at Rodale’s, for the first time ever, we offer e-gift cards. So if you aren’t sure what to give people on your list, you can send an e-gift and let them decide for themselves.
We’ve worked super hard to curate an incredible collection of stuff I truly hope you love. What I’d also love is your feedback. What are we missing that you can’t find? Does the site work well for you, or not? What else can we do to make the shopping experience truly spectacular? I want to know.
Thank you. And happy shopping!
