Turn Black Friday green

Let’s face it — you probably won’t be first in line at any big box store this Friday. Rather than wait all morning for a big screen TV, skip the shopping and glide through the air instead.

Adventure America Zipline Canopy Tours will offer a special day of zipline excursions to benefit several environmental organizations. Half of the ticket price at its Asheville location will go to Asheville GreenWorks, a volunteer organization dedicated to environmental stewardship in Asheville and Buncombe Counties.

If you’d rather take an afternoon drive before zipping through the trees, Pigeon River Canopy Tours, in Hartford, Tenn., will also be participating. Further still, Nantahala Gorge Canopy Tours, near Bryson City, will donate part of its profits to the Watershed Association of the Tuckasegee River (WATR).  And Chattooga Ridge Canopy Tours, in Long Creek, S.C., will support TreesGreenville, which has planted 2,200 trees since its founding in 2005.

These are just a few reasons to skip the shopping lines and try a zipline instead.

When: Friday, Nov. 25, throughout the day

Where: Asheville, Hartford and Bryson City, Tenn. and Long Creek, S.C.

Price: $54-79, depending on location. Half of the ticket price will be donated to various environmental organizations.
