Let's Celebrate Earth Day Everyday!
Earth Day is celebrated on April 22 every year. It’s a day that aims to raise awareness about climate change and inspires us to act towards the protection of the environment and the need for conservation.
Earth Day was first celebrated on April 22, 1970, when 20 million Americans (10% of the then-current US population) took to the streets to protest environmental ignorance. The credit for this major event goes to US Senator Gaylord Nelson, who rallied the support of people regarding this pressing issue.
The theme for 2022 is ‘invest in our planet’ – it’s the only one we have!
Here at The Balcony Garden, we’ve done just that! On June 30th 2021, our business announced that our entire organisation, manufacturing supply chain and product life cycle is 100% carbon neutral. Something we are extremely proud of!
To celebrate Earth Day, we are gifting the gift that keeps on giving! Three lucky people have the opportunity to plant 500 trees each via ecologi.com! How awesome is that!
Customers who purchase online from April 1 – 21 go in the draw to win one of three climate-positive gifts and plant 500 trees each! Winners will be announced on April 22.
Native trees will be planted on the winner’s behalf in places like Madagascar and Uganda and all impact is visible on the recipient’s own virtual forest that can be tracked online.
It’s simple things we can do every day to help our planet like picking up litter, planting trees, using less water and eating less meat to name a few. Looking for more ideas to make a difference? Check out our blog on ways to achieve a more sustainable lifestyle.
