Fort Worth (April 12, 2023) – Taking measurable steps today to ensure a sustainable tomorrow, Tanger Outlets Fort Worth invites the community to celebrate Earth Day on Saturday, April 22 from noon – 2 p.m. with free fun planned for the entire family. Guests will have the opportunity to join interactive workshops, eco-friendly shopping experiences and more as the regional outlet destination furthers its commitment to building a greener world for future generations.
“At Tanger, we are committed to being good stewards of the planet every day,” said Holly Conner, Tanger Outlets Fort Worth Marketing Director. “This month offers the opportunity to celebrate that commitment with our neighbors in the community by hosting engaging and educational Earth Day festivities for the whole family.”
Shoppers abuzz with Earth Day excitement will kickstart the 2023 bee season with an interactive Earth Day Bee Workshop focused on the many ways pollinators contribute to a healthy, balanced ecosystem. Led by a local beekeeper, the educational event will take place near Polo Ralph Lauren at the turf from noon – 2 p.m.
Tanger Outlets Fort Worth proudly partners with urban beekeeping company Alvéole to house more than 50,000 bees in its single rooftop hive as part of an ongoing effort to increase the greater bee population locally and around the globe.
No Earth Day celebration is complete without recognizing the vital role trees play in producing oxygen, improving air quality, reducing waste and pollution, conserving water and supporting wildlife, among other benefits. Tanger Outlets Fort Worth will partner with J.C. Thompson Elementary School to host a Tree Planting from 9 a.m. – 11 a.m. near the playground. All ages are welcome to play in the dirt during this hands-on event that will help protect the planet now and in the future.
Tanger shoppers can also make a difference by shopping sustainably with national retailers including Guess and Levi’s that will commemorate Earth Day by offering patrons special savings when they bring in gently used apparel or gear to donate for recycling.
Tanger Outlets continues its commitment to environmental responsibility and stewardship across its portfolio.
Many of the company’s 36 properties across the U.S. and Canada are helping to reduce carbon emissions, energy and waste through LEED Gold certification with more properties set to join the program in coming years. By partnering with eco-minded companies like Volta to provide shoppers with electric vehicle charging stations, as well as joining forces with Alvéole to create clean and connected communities through beekeeping, Tanger Outlets is striving to reduce its carbon footprint one sustainable step at a time.
