Earth Day Events at Columbus Circle #ThisisEco

Although GOING GREEN is an ongoing commitment, Earth Day is a great time to recognize those dedicated to making a conscious effort to drive awareness and participation towards the cause!


This Thursday, April 17th from 11am – 3pm EILEEN FISHER will offer a #THISISECO pop-up experience at The Shops at Columbus Circle showcasing their eco-collection and sustainability initiatives, including the Green Eileen recycled clothing program that reduces environmental impact by selling gently worn EILEEN FISHER clothing.

There also will be a number of interactive displays & samples on the second floor of The Shops by retailers  including Aveda,L’Occitane en ProvenceMicrosoft, O&Co., Satya Jewelry and Whole Foods Market, as well as other area partners from 11am-3pm.
