Philadelphia Eagles Support Wind Energy

The Philadelphia Eagles announced Wednesday it will reimburse its employees living in the Philadelphia region and New Jersey who purchase wind energy, making it the first organization to pick up with this type of cost for employees. Eagles President Christina Lurie will present the football team's Go Green initiative during the 2007 NFL Business Summit to be held at the Marriott in Philadelphia.
"We hope to serve as an example for NFL Teams and the corporate sector," Lurie said. "The topic of greening in sports is especially important to cities like Philadelphia with professional teams and sports arenas. Game days have a huge environmental impact considering traffic, trash, energy and material consumption, and water use. They are also opportunities for educaton and awareness."
Lurie explained, if an employee purchases 300 KW of wind energy, it is the equivalent to planting 268 trees every year or not driving 3,600 miles. Considering the Eagles would get at least 100 employees to participate, that would equal 360,000 miles not driven or more than 26,800 trees planted.

Filene's Basement Opens

If you are looking for a new shopping experience look no further than Filene's Basement in Mercer Mall. The store opened about 9:30 this morning after a small ribbon cutting ceremony. A small group of shoppers waited patiently for the doors to open and proceeded to grab carts or bags and work their way through the store. By 10:30 a.m. consumers visiting Mercer Mall could see women leaving with at least one or more bags from the store and more shoppers were driving up and going in to explore. The store's ambience is clean and refreshing offering shoppers up-to-date easy-listening music to as they explore the racks and accessory items.
If you aren't familiar with Filene's Basement, the retail store is similar to TJ Maxx or Ross but targets the more label-savvy consumer at discount prices. So if you enjoy labels like Kenneth Cole, Ralph Lauren, Philosphy, Harve Bernard, Polo, and DKNY, this is your store. Enjoy!

Good Fun Had By All

People are still buzzing about the Mercer Regional Chamber of Commerce Hall of Fame award dinner held last week. Good fun was had by all and well over 450 people attended the event at the Hyatt Regency in Princeton. If you weren't there, you missed a great time. From the moment the reception began you knew people were there to enjoy themselves, in fact Donald Loff, chairman of MRCC, had a hard time getting everyone to be quiet since people were talking and socializing so much. Everyone enjoyed the video profiles of the winners - The Trentonian, Corporation of the Year and Marsilio's, Oustanding Small Business of the Year - but the most moving part of the dinner was the speech given by Tim Losch who received the Citizens of the Year award. I'm looking forward to next year!
