Tomorrow, April 22, is Earth Day. Celebrate with these shopping events and more:

Emory Point Pop-Up Wednesdays: Beginning Wednesday, April 22, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., this weekly event in the courtyard offers giveaways, interactive pop-up activities and local vendors. On Earth Day, visitors will join The Homestead Atlanta to plant their own seedlings in a pot made from recycled newspaper.

J.Crew and Save The Bees campaign: Buy a Save The Bees tee ($45 for women’s) and 50 percent of the retail price will go towards helping the Xerces Society to create habitats for bees which are currently becoming endangered.

Kiehl’s Recycle Across America: Elizabeth Olsen and Maggie Q have each designed a limited edition label for Kiehl’s .95 oz. Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado available at Kiehl’s stores and www.Kiehls.com/EarthDay. In addition, through Recycle and Be Rewarded, the in-store recycling program allows customers to return their empty Kiehl’s bottles, tubes and jars for recycling, in exchange for product. Kiehl’s retail stores will be celebrating Earth Day by giving five stamps for every one Kiehl’s empty returned (it’s usually one stamp per empty.) The offer is good April 22 – 25.

No nonsense tights recycling: Recycle your tights with No nonsense on Earth Day. The program re-purposes the nylon/spandex blend found in many tights, and turns them into park benches, running tracks, car insulation, and playground equipment. Visit Nononsense.com/recycle to download a mailing label, box up your used tights and pantyhose (all brands accepted), and bring them to your nearest shipping location.

Sabot: Bring in a pair of your heels or a jacket and get 25 percent off any pair of heels or jacket in the store. Sabot will recycle yours and donate it to Dress for Success. The offer is good now through April 25. Sabot, 45 Irby Avenue, Atlanta.
