Cheers to planet Earth! Earth Day is Friday, April 22, and St. Johns Town Center plans to celebrate our planet in a big way by showcasing its current sustainability programs, hosting educational demonstrations and offering exciting giveaways throughout the day. 

In honor of Earth Day, the Dick’s Sporting Goods courtyard will be transformed into an environmental fair complete with demonstrations and information from groups including The YMCA and UNF Public Health Department. Eastcoast Land Care will give away 100 trees to patrons interested in planting to commemorate the special event.

While Earth Day is celebrated only one day, St. Johns Town Center celebrates and supports sustainable living year round! Most recently, two electric vehicle charging stations have been installed on the property behind Jos. A. Bank store on Midtown Parkway.  Shoppers are able to “pull up and plug in” their vehicles at the charging station while they enjoy time at the mall. The center has also added free Tesla charging stations behind the Tesla store. 

Additionally, the Shop Shuttlebug, which runs on an electric battery, transports shoppers from surrounding parking lots to their shopping destination on property. The 15-passenger Moto Electric Vehicle shuttle operates Fridays and Saturdays from 12 – 9 p.m. and Sundays from 12 – 6 p.m. The center recently added drinking fountains with bottle refill stations to the Wolfson’s play area, restroom next to Starbucks and in the park green, where misters can also be found. The center also offers cardboard recycling for tenants and recycling bins located throughout the property for everyday use. Even the landscaping at St. Johns Town Center is green! Drought-tolerant plants that require less water decorate the property, and plants are fertilized organically. Guests also have access to twelve bike racks, which can be found throughout the property, and paperless hand dryers in common-area restrooms. 



“We want to reinforce our enthusiasm for going green and encourage our shoppers to do the same,” said Valerie Beaubrun, General Manager at St. Johns Town Center. “With all of our upcoming and existing eco-friendly initiatives, we are making it possible for even more people to make a positive difference when it comes to the environment.
