National Gift Card gives ‘green’ to Arbor Day Foundation, McHenry County Environmental Advocates in Earth Day Observance
April 22, 2014 – CRYSTAL LAKE, Ill. – National Gift Card Corporation (NGC) is going “greener” by advancing its plastic-less, paperless digital gift card availability, and is observing its progress today on Earth Day with contributions to the Arbor Day Foundation and the Environmental Defenders of McHenry County.
NGC announced contributions of $2,000 to the Arbor Day Foundation, known as one of the world’s largest tree planting organizations, and $1,000 to the Environmental Defenders of McHenry County; the county where NGC recently located its new headquarters and gift card fulfillment center.
The company continues to expand its offering of retail, dining, and specialty brands, delivered through its ngcecodes platform and its Gift Card API. NGC’s latest green technology achievement is its API - which allows loyalty, rewards, and incentive companies the ability to order and deliver digital gift cards electronically to recipients. 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.
“ngceCodesis an attractive and ‘green’ alternative, offering the same variety, flexibility, and customization options as traditional plastic gift cards. With our ability to send rewards in real time, the demand for eCodes has increased as our customers enhance their programs to allow for the instant redemption of gift cards,” said NGC President Adam Van Witzenburg.
