Earth Day 2020
Let’s talk first of all about Earth Day and, let’s just say, I cannot think of a more important or apt time to discuss this considering the current situation we all find ourselves in now ,living amidst the fear and threat of COVID-19.
It’s 5o years since Earth Day was established. It’s mission is to build the world’s largest environmental movement to drive transformative change for people and planet.
‘Earth Day Network’s mission is to diversify, educate and activate the environmental movement worldwide. Growing out of the first Earth Day in 1970, Earth Day Network is the world’s largest recruiter to the environmental movement, working with more than 75,000 partners in over 190 countries to drive positive action for our planet.’
Their vision is clear and it is not just directed at government and large corporations but it is encouraging us, as individuals, to all use our power and influence as a consumer, a voter, and a member of a community to unite for change.
We must never underestimate our own power. When your voice and your actions are united with thousands or millions of others around the world, we create a movement that is inclusive, impactful, and impossible to ignore.
Passionate about sustainability
At Aequora, we are passionate about sustainability and doing the very best we can for a cleaner and greener future. It’s not just about sustainable practices, although we believe that is paramount. You already know we are a truly green beauty brand, so already that is a step in the right direction. We also ensure all our packaging is recyclable – not just our product packaging but also our mailing/shipping packaging. Our mailer boxes are 100% recyclable and printed with eco friendly ink and we only ever use bio degradable void fill made from natural starch which is water soluble. We also only use recycled paper for printing. Every decision we make here is a conscious thought about how we reduce our carbon footprint and our focus is always on sustainability.
We are very proud to now be planting trees through our sales and donate to One Tree Planted .
We are thrilled that we are planting trees in Australia, especially after the devastation of the recent bush fires.
WHY ARE TREES IMPORTANT TO THE ENVIRONMENT?
‘Trees help clean the air we breathe, filter the water we drink, and provide habitat to over 80% of the world’s terrestrial biodiversity.
Forests provide jobs to over 1.6 billion people, absorb harmful carbon from the atmosphere, and are key ingredients in 25% of all medicines.’
Head on over to One Tree Planted to read more on all the incredible facts about trees and how you can get involved.
