Salem, Ore. -- Anthropologie and the Cork Forest Conservation Alliance (CFCA) announced a joint initiative in all 153 Anthropologie stores in the United States and United Kingdom to increase awareness and promote the preservation of Mediterranean cork forests, one of the planet’s most important ecosystems.
The CFCA donated two million corks, which were distributed among the 153 stores to be fabricated into unique, design-rich window displays that support the preservation the of cork forests. The installation of the window displays were designed to coincide with the worldwide Earth Day event on April 22.
“We are honored that for the first time in Anthropologie’s history they have devoted window display space to a partner organization, philanthropic or otherwise,” CFCA executive director Patrick Spencer said. “Anthropologie’s customers tend to be creative, environmentally and socially responsible -- it’s a great fit for us.”
Striped Shirt Cinema of Portland, Ore., will produce a short documentary showcasing the creative process and installation of the window displays. The three Anthropologie stores featured in the video are Rockefeller Center in New York City, Washington, D.C., and Portland, Ore.
