NEW YORK, Apr 16, 2009 / FW/ — According to a recent study completed by the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), the threat of global warming can still be greatly diminished if nations cut emissions of heat-trapping greenhouse gases by 70 percent this century.
The author says that while global temperatures would rise, the most dangerous potential aspects of climate change, including massive losses of Arctic sea ice and permafrost and significant sea level rise, could be partially avoided.
With a need that drastic, every little thing counts; and that’s why Macy’s “Turn Over a New Leaf” which last year raised more than $2.9 million for the National Park Foundation that work to protect and conserve the environment is once more asking for help in continuing its campaign designed to support, educate and inspire eco-friendly practices in everyday life.
Beginning April 15, Macy’s will offer a new fashion reusable tote for $1.95 with a $1 donation to the National Park Foundation available in-store only.
Online, customers can shop at Macy’s Eco-Shop at www.macys.com . The online Eco-Shop will feature a collection of “green” merchandise for men, women and children, including accessories, as well as cosmetics and select products for the home.
On April 25, Macy’s is holding “One Good Turn” National Charity Shopping Day
Customers can do good and save by purchasing a ticket for One Good Turn, Macy’s April 25 national charity day shopping event.
By making a $5 donation at Macy’s stores, macys.com or online at www.nationalparks.org, customers will receive an all-day shopping pass for 20 percent off most men’s, women’s, kid’s, and accessories merchandise, and 10 percent off most home items.
Customers who make the $5 donation will also receive a ticket for $5 off a $15 storewide purchase, one time use (offer not valid in Florida or Puerto Rico).
Macy’s will donate 100 percent of ticket sale proceeds to the National Park Foundation and local participating nonprofit organizations that protect and conserve the environment.
Also, the first 150 kids to visit the Children’s Department on Earth Day will get the new Kid Power Activity Book, a First Bloom-inspired activity book from the National Park Foundation that helps teach children fun ways they can keep the Earth healthy.
Download the book at www.nationalparks.org/npweek or visit a Macy’s store on Earth Day, April 22.
