REI Closes Doors On Black Friday To Encourage #OptOutside


#optoutside is currently a trending travel hashtag, thanks to REI.

On Black Friday, the American retail corporation has publicly announced that it will not be open on the biggest shopping day of the year. Instead, the company wants people to explore nature and enjoy all that the beautiful outdoors can offer.

On social media, almost a million people have joined the initiative by sharing magnificent photos of mother nature. Furthermore, many national parks that normally require entrance fees will be free to enter. Washington’s National Park Fund, for example, is offering free entrance to Mt. Rainier and Olympic.

This sure beats pushing and shoving with insane crowds!
