WESTFIELD, NJ – Scotch Plains- Fanwood residents are urged to support the anti-littering work of the New Jersey Clean Communities Council by shopping at an environmentally-conscious boutique in Westfield on Satruday, Nov. 22.
 
Eileen Fisher (9 Elm St. in Westifled) is doing its part to support the New Jersey Clean Communities’ annual Environmental Student Exchange – to be held next year in Stanhope on March 19, 2015 – by donating 10 percent of sales on Saturday, Nov. 22 to support the program. The event runs from 12:00 noon to 4 p.m. in downtown Westfield.
 
 
“We are extremely grateful to Eileen Fisher for supporting one of our signature statewide events,” said Sandy Huber, executive director of the New Jersey Clean Communities Council (NJCCC). “The `Salute to Sustainability’ event promises to attract more than 500 students from different regions throughout the state to Waterloo Village. The children will work together on environmental projects and consider ways in which New Jersey can do more to remain litter-free.”
 
NJCCC is expected to have children on hand at Eileen Fisher during the four-hour promotion at the clothing store at 9 Elm St., on the northbound side of the Westfield Train Station. Participating in the event will be Morgan and Amanda Hayes from Gordon Parks Academy is East Orange, along with Madison Foti from Williamstown Middle School in South Jersey.

 
To further encourage sales, Eileen Fisher will be offering $30 coupons for purchases of more than $50.
 
Huber said Eileen Fisher made a connection with NJCCC because of its sustainable clothing line manufactured with recycled materials. “This clothing company is leading the way in the garment industry with sustainability and encouraging young people to do the right thing for the environment,” she said.
