Here’s the fact : the planet can’t afford more shopping frenzy campaigns that hype over consumption and we need to change our consumption habit !
The #whitemonday movement was founded in 2017 in Malmö, Sweden,by the circular cloth-repair start up Repamera AB. The movement is the antidote to #BlackFriday and rooted on reuse, repair and rent values to promote circular consumption.
While #BlackFriday stands for linear, wear & tear consumption and competition, #WhiteMonday is all about circular consumption and collaboration. The black/white and Monday/Friday elements are chosen to draw clear differences between the two movements, just like Yin & Yang.

The Swedish Association of Responsible Consumption joined the force and they arrange it together since then. They believe The Future is Circular !
