Deciem’s Black Friday Boycott Continues As It Eschews ‘Hyper-Consumerism’
Taking its Black Friday boycott into a second year, The Ordinary’s parent company Deciem is solidifying its position as the Patagonia of the beauty world, according to Glossy.co
Canadian beauty company Deciem announced on Sunday its boycott of Black Friday for the second year in a row, shutting down all physical stores and e-commerce for the day. It follows in the footsteps of Patagonia, which first started the practice in 2016. Like last year, Deciem is making everything on the site 23% off for the month of November, as an alternative.
Black Friday is “something that’s not working for our planet, because it’s just promoting hyper-consumerism rather than people actually buying what they want,” says Deciem co-founder and CEO Nicola Kilner. “The reality is that if you wouldn’t pay full price for it, it’s probably not something that you truly did need in the first place.”

Verizon Launches Blockchain Verification For News Releases
Telecoms firm Verizon recently launched Full Transparency, an open source newsroom platform on blockchain, says https://www.ledgerinsights.com/. For the proof of concept, it partnered with Huge, MadNetwork and AdLedger to increase corporate accountability as part of its corporate responsibility initiative, Citizen Verizon.
According to the 2020 Edelman Trust Barometer, 60% of global news consumers don’t have full trust in the information given to them. Verizon’s Full Transparency specifically targets corporate newsrooms as opposed to news outlets. But it means readers can more easily go back to the original source and see what was said and whether the corporate announcement has been updated. The platform is particularly meaningful in today’s uncertain socio-political environment as consumers look for trusted news sources in an attempt to make some sense of the current situation.
