Earth Day Network and Zagwear Team Up to Help Launch Earth Day Network’s Official Online Store
NEW YORK, March 25 /PRNewswire/ — Earth Day Network and Zagwear today announced their collaboration on the launch of Earth Day Network’s official online store in advance of Earth Day’s 40th anniversary celebration on April 22. Earth Day Network was founded by the organizers of the first Earth Day in 1970 to promote environmental citizenship and now encompasses more than 17,000 partners and organizations in 174 countries. Each year more than 1 billion people participate in Earth Day activities around the world.
The Earth Day Network collection by Anvil Knitwear includes a special-edition line of designed activewear and accessories featuring eco-friendly messages. The online store is designed and managed by Zagwear, which worked exclusively with Anvil Knitwear to merchandise the line. The collection of tees, sweatshirts and bags will allow consumers to wear their part this April and support Earth Day’s message of environmental activism.
