23 November 2020

Green is most definitely the new black this year and the movement towards supporting small businesses in local communities is welcomed with open arms by the team at Carewswood Garden Centre Café in Castlemartyr. Traditionally, Black Friday gave way for mass consumerism with multinational organisations reaping all the benefits but 2020, a year like no other is witnessing the message behind Green Friday become more and more widespread.


This year more than ever, Green Friday and what it represents is so important to Irish businesses. After the devastating impact of a global pandemic, small local businesses have had to completely change the way they operate. A lot of businesses have had to pivot their sales online, including Daniel and Juulika Leahy of Carewswood Garden Centre Café. When customers couldn’t visit the garden centre to purchase plants or garden furniture, Carewswood made it all available online with nationwide delivery. The couple put a lot of hard work into making the website something to be proud of. 


Carewswood Garden Centre Café will be among the many Irish businesses participating in Green Friday this November 27th, offering customers the chance to avail of great value while supporting local.


Speaking about the importance of keeping it Green this Friday, Daniel Leahy said: “Small businesses are a huge part of our local economy and Green Friday is a fantastic initiative to highlight the huge variety of products and gifts available on our doorsteps, making it even easier to support local this Christmas. Here at Carewswood, customers have the chance to go all green this Christmas. Green can mean a lot of things, it can be the literal green, which we have a lot of - our Family Apple Tree for example, that grows 5 different varieties of apples, and it can also mean supporting local - our hampers, which are brimming with the finest of goods from local producers in Ireland.”


Many trends have emerged since the beginning of Covid-19 and one of those has been the rise in people getting back to nature and transforming their gardens. To celebrate Green Friday and offering garden lovers something to look forward to, Carewswood Garden Centre Café will have 30% of their potted tree range this Friday, with all trees available for online purchasing and nationwide delivery. Carewswood have an extensive range of garden essentials on their website including ornaments, compost and aggregates, plants, tools, hampers, bulbs, seeds and much more.
