Earth Day Practices at Clay Terrace

Earth Day

Many of our retailers make sustainability part of their brands, missions, and initiatives not only on Earth Day, but also throughout the year. Whether switching to paperless receipts, offering reusable bags with a purchase, incorporating recycled materials into their packaging or products, or creating a program to recycle gently used garments by giving their customers incentive to make an impact. 


As part of American Eagle‘s broader sustainability goals, they’ve made a commitment to moving toward more sustainable raw materials and reducing our water and energy usage. Look for the “Real Good” badge on select styles that are made from more sustainable raw materials or using more sustainable techniques, such as in a factory that meets expectations for our Water Leadership Program.
