Colourful Friday - not Black Friday

Colourful Friday - not Black Friday

Colourful clothing brand Gung Ho has launched its Climate Change collection this year. As a brand that encourages you to wear your heart on your sleeve, it makes sense that what makes you feel and look good, also does good. No guilty purchases here this Black Friday. The COVID-19 outbreak has shown us glimpses of a world with less pollution; wildlife in our gardens, clean air and blue skies. It makes us realise that together our actions can actually make a difference. So this Black Friday if you treat yourself to something lovely by midnight on November 27 Gung Ho will donate 20% of the sale to Friends of the Earth via Work For Good. https://www.gungholondon.com/
