Earth Day is a global event celebrating the positive changes we can make to help improve our world for the better. It's a time to reflect on our personal habits and how they impact our planet. Read one to find out how you can celebrate Earth day, every day.
Our Choices Matter
The impact we have as individuals might be small but it still matters. One way we can celebrate Earth Day is to set a few goals, or commit to new habits. Start with this zero waste challenge and reduce your plastic use by making some sustainable swaps.
Documentaries can be so powerful they can change our–watching The True Cost made us double down on our commitment to sustainability! These films reveal the truth, as unbelievable and heartbreaking as it may be. If you want to learn more, these environmental documentaries and reading lists are a good place to start.
Shop Small, Buy Handmade
There's a lot of power in where we choose to spend our money. One small purchase can make a big difference. When you buy from an independent maker, you know exactly who made it. You're supporting an individual, helping them to pay back into the community and keeping their business alive.
Shopping small is a more sustainable choice. But if you don't need to shop, there are plenty of ways you can support small businesses–without buying anything at all! Our favourite way to show our support of fellow makers is to leave a review to help boost their visibility online.
