OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE – Costa Mesa, CA – There is a global food shortage, 'climate change' is listed in Webster's New Millennium Dictionary and pollution is a constant battle – all very important reasons to get involved and celebrate Earth Day. An estimated 1 billion people will participate in Earth Day events around the world and The Paul Frank Stores are ready once again with an event that generates awareness and provides a call to action to help out our planet.
On Sunday, April 20th, The Paul Frank Stores in the U.S. will host silk-screening events at each retail location and donate 10 percent of the stores proceeds to one of our favorite environmental organizations, the National Resources Defense Council, or NRDC! Stop into any Paul Frank Store, spend $50 or more and silk-screen your own organic tote with special soy-based ink. When you shop with your Paul Frank tote in the coming year, you'll receive 10 percent off your purchase and reduce consumer waste by not using paper or plastic bags. It's Paul Frank's way of keeping Earth Day top-of-mind all year long.
The news media paints a bleak picture of our Earth's condition, but there are positive, worldwide efforts that will turn a small splash into a tidal wave of change. It's already starting, on June 4th the first TV network solely devoted to environment will go live. For the last two years, the Chinese government has actively supported Earth Day. When so many Chinese citizens logged onto www.earthday.net last year, they crashed the site. For more information on Paul Frank store locations: www.paulfrank.com.
Every change is important; at Paul Frank we have recently greened our Winnebago. Check it out on an upcoming episode of Adrian Grenier's new environmental show, The Green Life, on The Discovery Channe
