Riverside, CA (PRWEB) April 21, 2010
Organize.com, Inc. (http://www.organize.com), a leading online retailer of home storage and organization consumer products will join more than one billion people, organizations and companies in 190 countries who are taking action on April 21st to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of Earth Day. Organize.com is offering a broader selection of green products, easy eco-friendly tips for home and office, a free gift with purchase and an “Easy Being Green” Twitter Party.
“Making small, Earth-friendly changes that easily become a way of life can make a big impact when you combine them”, says Deborah Shearer – VP of Merchandising & Marketing at Organize.com. “We offer ways to make it ‘easy to be green’ every day for our customers. Our plans for the 40th Anniversary of Earth Day include 40 Ways to Live Green, links to Go Green Resources, such as http://precycle.tonic.com/ to put a stop to junk mail, Nike’s shoe recycle program; http://www.nikereuseashoe.com, http://www.earth911.org for General Environmental Cleanup Info and http://www.treehugger.com for general information and guides to help you to ‘be green’ in just about any aspect of your life”, says Shearer.
Organize.com also merchandises products such as reusable shopping bags and totes, products made of bamboo and recycled materials, products for recycling, reusable water bottles, and eco-friendly storage in their ‘easy to be green’ department and category of their site so all the information is in one place. Consumers can also easily identify eco-friendly products throughout the Organize.com site, as these products are labeled with an Organize.com ‘go green’ icon.
According to The Wall Street Journal, the U.S. goes through 100 billion plastic shopping bags annually or almost a half a million per minute. Four out of five grocery bags in the US are now plastic and the average family accumulates 60 plastic bags in only four trips to the grocery store. They have the ability to accumulate and persist on our planet for up 1,000 years. “It’s easy to convert consumers to re-usable shopping bags when they hear these numbers. Some countries are also taking a stand by charging consumers to use paper and plastic or sometimes even banning the use of plastic bags completely; like in cities such as San Francisco”, says Shearer.
To celebrate the 40th anniversary of Earth Day, Organize.com is helping to solve the dilemma of “paper or plastic” by offering a special Gift With Purchase of a free Reisenthel® reusable shopping bag ($6.99 value) with any site wide purchase of $40 or more. The totes are available while supplies last.
In alignment with Organize.com’s current marketing and social media strategy, the company will also host an “Easy Being Green” Twitter Party and give away up to $500 in eco-friendly products. The party will take place on April 21st from 5 to 7 pm PST. During that time Mrs. Organized and the Organize.com Twitter Team will tweet questions, tips, and prizes related to Earth Day to virtual party goers in real time.
