You can celebrate Earth Day’s 41st Anniversary by visiting some of your favorite stores. As concern for the environment grows, individuals and organizations pledge to make a difference in healthier living. This year’s ever expanding list of difference makers includes Starbucks and Lowes. But if you take a look around, there’s a store on almost every corner participating in the Earth Day celebration in some form or another. Being green is so in. So spend the day out in this Spring weather and pay attention to those offering green gifts; you may be pleasantly surprised.
Are you doing something special in honor of Earth Day? We’d love to hear about it. And don’t forget to visit earthday.org and submit your Act of Green for the Billion Acts of Green Campaign. From the simplest, smallest gestures to the grandiose, it’s a beautiful thing.
According to a recent online post from Starbucks Global Responsibility Manager, Sue L., “In 2010, people brought their own tumblers into our stores more than 32 million times, keeping nearly 1.45 million pounds of paper out of landfills.” Clearly Starbucks and their dedicated customers impact our world every day by performing one small gesture.
Lowes. Visit a local Lowes store on Saturday, April 23rd and receive a tree in honor of Earth Day 2011. This is a great way to get the entire family involved and to help teach children the importance of taking care of the environment for today and tomorrow, ensuring a sustainable world for the next generation. Make a day of it. Bring the entire family outside to plant the tree and talk about its significance, and then enjoy a picnic lunch out on the lawn, admiring your handiwork and Earth Day Birthday gift.
Happy Feet. As you leave your carbon footprint behind today while celebrating this place we call home, remember to wear your Happy Feet® Insoles. In an effort to become an eco-friendly partner in helping take care of the environment, Happy Feet manufacturers use biodegradable, non-toxic glycerin which meets USFDA compliance regulations.
