Celebrating Earth Day with Michaels
Michaels, a chain of stores in America specializing in offering a wide assortment of arts, crafts, framing, floral, wall décor and seasonal merchandise for the hobbyist and do-it-yourself home decorator, honors the Earth Day with upcycling party ideas, a tree-planting initiative and eco-conscious crafting events for kids throughout the month.
Michaels joins the worldwide celebration of Earth Day on April 22 by providing customers with is inspiring upcycling project ideas and launching of a text-message campaign to plant 10,000 trees in the country through the American Forests Global ReLeaf program. Michaels has also released its April LookBook featuring creative ideas for celebrating Earth Day, including party games and various décor items created with the help of recycled materials always available at home. The examples of projects are:
Water Bottle Bowling made of empty plastic water bottles turned into brightly painted "pins" for a fun, eco-minded game;
Block Party Banner – using a little leftover fabric and recycled cardboard it's easy to make a welcoming sign for friends and neighbors;
Recycled Flowers – festive flower décor made from old soda cans or newspapers.
In addition, the retailer features Michaels Kids Club which also will host Earth Day crafting events in all stores throughout April. For only $2 per child, kids can learn how to make one-of-a-kind stamps with foam and paint, craft puppets from recycled water bottles or turn leftover supplies into art during a 30-minute session.
Believing that creativity is one of the greatest natural resources Michaels encourages customers to sign up for its text alerts in April and help plant new trees. In April, Michaels will make a donation that will let Global ReLeaf, an organization devoted to planting trees and restoring local ecosystems, plant 10,000 trees.
