“We had so much fun at our Earth Month event, cleaning up the farm and organizing vegetables. Being able to shift that experience into a healthy cooking class for youth made the day all that much better,” said Phil Meynard, President of Planet, Inc.

Waltham, MA (PRWEB) April 19, 2014

PlanetShoes, an online shoe and accessories retailer from Waltham, MA, is offering a 15% discount to customers when they donate $1 to 1% for the Planet this Earth Day. From April 18th through April 22nd, shoppers will have the opportunity to make the donation through the PlanetShoes website to save 15% off their entire purchase. PlanetShoes believes in helping others make healthy choices for themselves, the earth and their community, and this donation gets at the heart of their feel-good mission.

The campaign will launch with the release of PlanetShoes’ “In Our Community” video, highlighting the work they have done this Earth Month to improve the earth and general well-being of their local community. Starting at their annual Waltham Fields Farm Volunteer Day and ending at a healthy cooking class at the local Boys and Girls Club, PlanetShoes employees embark on a journey from farm-to-table, teaching local youth the importance of these lessons along the way.

“We had so much fun at our Earth Month event, cleaning up the farm and organizing vegetables. Being able to shift that experience into a healthy cooking class for youth made the day all that much better,” said Phil Meynard, President of Planet, Inc. “Continuing these efforts to offer an incentivized donation to an awesome environmental organization like 1% for the Planet just seems like the right way to continue doing our part for the environment as Earth Month continues.”
