Going Green: National Gift Card Plans NGCecodes Discount for Earth Day Orders
Portion of sales to benefit local environmental group
April 18, 2011 - CRYSTAL LAKE, Ill. In observance of Earth Day, Friday, April 22, and to encourage its new and existing customers to go green. National Gift Card Corporation (NGC) announced today it will offer on that day a special bonus discount on all NGCecodesorders.
In addition, a portion of the proceeds from the Earth Day sale will be donated to Environmental Defenders of McHenry County, a local citizen organization dedicated to the preservation and improvement of the environment.
The NGCecodes program allows gift card customers the ability to order and deliver digital gift cards electronically to recipients, bypassing the need for plastic gift cards, printed paper envelopes and card carriers, packaging materials, and the additional environmental impact of air and ground shipment and delivery. With as many as 10 billion new plastic gift cards manufactured every year, electronic delivery is becoming a growing cost-saving and environmentally-friendly trend.
We like to think of ourselves as a company concerned about the environment year-round by offering the NGCecodes program as an attractive and green alternative, offering the same variety, flexibility, and customization options as traditional plastic gift cards. Since making NGCecodes available last year, we've seen increased interest from our customers in using this option, said NGC President Adam Van Witzenburg. He added that digital gift cards delivered through the secure NGCecodes platform are as easy to use as traditional gift cards, whether the recipient redeems the gift card code at an online shopping site or a traditional brick and mortar establishment.
Van Witzenburg noted the NGCecodes program offers a large variety of major retail and dining gift cards available for electronic delivery. Customers may choose to purchase bulk quantities for their own delivery, or have NGC handle delivery via its individual fulfillment program.
