Houston, TX (PRWEB) August 01, 2013
American Textile Recycling Service (ATRS) debuts its “Shop and Recycle” Campaign to coincide with back-to-school shopping and tax-free weekends this month. Partnering with Brixmor Property Group at the following centers: The Centre at Preston Ridge, Frisco, TX; Cedar Bellaire, Bellaire, TX; Montebello Plaza in Montebello, CA and Hall Road Crossing, Shelby Township, MI— ATRS will host fun, friendly drop and drive recycling events at key shopping centers in three states during the first two weekends of August 2-11, 2013.
According to the National Retail Federation, back-to-school shopping is the second most revenue-generating shopping event of the year, eclipsed only by holiday shopping in December. They also anticipate over 16% of annual shopping revenue will be generated this month with the bulk being spent on clothes, electronics and school supplies.
The Shop and Recycle initiative helps to educate families, moms and those all important “millennial” back-to-school shoppers about the benefits of recycling while providing a convenient point-of-purchase solution for recycling and donating last season’s unwearable, outgrown and unwanted clothes, shoes, toys and other household textiles. To date, ATRS has diverted over 155 million pounds from local landfills in its regions and has donated over $4M to worthy charities in the process.
Friendly ATRS Recycling teams will be on hand to distribute shopping coupons, retail store discounts and other promotions to help visitors score bargains and fulfill their shopping lists.
