Iconic Summer Moments Gone Green

POSTED UNDER Recycling & Waste Reduction

Macy’s waits all year to celebrate the time-honored iconic summer moments – from ballparks to beaches, from drive-ins to grill-outs. We show our enthusiasm through stores and communities across the country with events punctuated in red, white and blue.

Here are some hints to keep your summer activities as green as possible:

  • Volunteer to help collect recycling at your next baseball game
  • Promote reusing baseball equipment instead of buying new
  • Pack washable serving plates, utensils, towels, tablecloths and napkins for the next picnic
  • Provide containers for recycling and composting at your outdoor events
  • Buy local produce for your summer menus
  • Encourage neighbors to trade and reuse children’s swim toys
  • Recycle flip flops and athletic shoes; don’t send them to the landfill
  • Offer jugs/pitchers of water and other healthy beverages to reduce plastic water bottles and soft drink cans for the recycle bins
  • Walk and ride bikes to the next cookout or picnic, leave the car at home
  • Conserve energy and water and be mindful of fueling cars during smog alert days

Green Living doesn’t solely promote sustainability; it includes getting outside and away from all the screens, whether it’s a TV, computer or smart phone. Enjoy the beautiful environment around you – doing so will make living sustainably that much easier.
