Earth Day Every Day

Earth Day Every Day



Earth Day is an environmental movement that takes place on the 22nd April every year since the movement began in 1970. You can find out more about the history and the organisation over at Earth Day

Earth Day can be Every Day if we are being mindful of our actions, making green and ethical choices when and where we are able, even the smallest of choices can count. There is no perfect way to do this, it's just doing the stuff that we can do and each person and every household may be able to do different things.

Small Steps Count

Pure Unscented Natural Deodorant


Aside of making and using our plastic-free natural deodorants, here are some of the things that the Earth Conscious household do. 

use reusable water bottles and coffee mugs

use reusable period pants (4 women in our household)

we mend and fix items wherever possible before replacing

we try to minimise food waste

we buy refillable cleaning products from a local supplier

buy local wherever possible

buy from small business

buy organic produce (not always but for somethings like peanut butter which is also palm oil free and made in the UK)

buy glass or cardboard packaged products (again not always but for some items, think ketchup!)

buy Fairtrade chocolate & coffee

buy unpackaged fruit & vegetables when the choice is available to us

Marking the Earth Day Occasion

Over the year's Earth Conscious has chosen to support various charities. For a few years we have chosen #standfortrees. This Year we donated to to help protect the Bonobos in Mai Ndombe. 

 

Earth Day 2022 Stand For Trees

 
Previously we selected the Rimba Raya Orangutan Reserve in Indonesia. When our youngest twins were younger they absolutely loved Orangutan (obviously we all still do) but it was an easy choice to make from the selection of forests.

 

Stand For Trees

Rimba Raya is home to over 300 species of birds, 122 species of mammals, and 180 species of trees. It helps to protect local species including the Bornean Orangutan, clouded leopard, gibbon, proboscis monkey and Asian sun bear. It helps to improve access to clean water for local communities who protect the forest. And, it supports rehabilitation & environmental education programs — including the Orangutan Foundation International Program

The Marine Conservation Society

Every single day Earth Conscious supports The Marine Conservation Society, a charity protecting our seas, shores and wildlife. We donate 10p from every product sold.

World Ocean Day June 2020

 

Today is #WorldOceanDay! 🌊 and we want to send a big thank you to all our wonderful Earth Conscious customers who have helped to contribute a whopping £20,000 through donations to the Marine Conservation Society here in the UK.

The Marine Conservation Society works hard to protect our seas, shores, and wildlife and we are delighted to be able to play a small part in helping them carry out such important work.

What's more that's £20k SO FAR. For every one of our natural, plastic-free deodorants sold and of course our Baby Balm we will continue to donate 10p to them. It really does add up! Giving back and doing what we can is important to us, it's part of what we can do together to make a difference.

Of course, if you want to discover how else you might help you can check out their website, maybe even get prepared for this year's Plastic Free July challenge? https://www.mcsuk.org/how-you-can-help/

To round off with some vitamin sea from this beautiful beach we are so lucky to enjoy here on the Isle of Wight. This one was taken just a week ago in Sandown when our family managed to fit in some much needed Beach Therapy. We were the only ones on that particular stretch of beach, weird I know but hey it's Covid-19. BC of course there would be many more people out enjoying the space. Oh and spot the ships in the video, I would imagine 3 or 4 miles out to sea, anchored and waiting to return to some kind of new normal.
