Saving Animals One Tree-Free Tissue at a Time

Emerald Brand Partners With Bronx Zoo For Earth Weekend

In honor of Earth Day, Emerald Brand partnered with the Wildlife Conservation Society’s Bronx Zoo for Earth Weekend on April 23rd and April 24th to educate visitors on sustainability and global conservation.

The Bronx Zoo Earth Weekend events produced public awareness about environmental protection and Emerald Brand proudly partnered with the WCS in this initiative. Emerald’s Brand Ambassadors educated visitors about alternative, environmentally-friendly materials such as sugarcane, bamboo, and eucalyptus that can be used in everyday paper products, rather than the traditional use of hardwood trees. Visitors were given goodie bags of Emerald’s products, and were encouraged to make minor changes in order to generate a huge environmental impact.

“April is a huge month for us at Emerald since our mission revolves around saving the environment,” stated Emerald Brand Managing Director, Jaclyn McDuffey. “It’s always an honor to work with organizations like the Wildlife Conservation Society and the Bronx Zoo who share our beliefs to further educate the public about the environment and sustainability.”

Similar to Emerald’s mission, which is focused around global conservation and sustainability, the Bronx Zoo, a Wildlife Conservation Society Park, is dedicated to saving wildlife and conserving natural places worldwide through science, conservation action, education and inspiring people to value nature.

Earth Day, annually held on April 22nd, is a globally celebrated holiday where events are held worldwide to demonstrate support for environmental protection and appreciation for the Earth.
