It’s never been more important for individuals and companies to get involved with conservation and education efforts for a cleaner planet. House of Marley’s dedication to a sustainable future for the earth reaches every aspect of our business, including outreach to our beloved customers. So this Earth Day we encourage you to get involved in your local community or on a global scale, wherever you can. Here are a couple ideas to get you started.
There are endless volunteer opportunities on Earth Day (and year round) to plant trees, clean up streets and public parks, and complete other small but important tasks that make our world just a little greener. Not sure where to start? Visit http://www.volunteermatch.org to find opportunities near you.
2. Educate Yourself
The state of the planet and climate change news can be really overwhelming once you start looking into it, but it’s more important than ever for us to all be informed about what we’re fighting for. Netflix’s popular new Our Planet documentary is a good place to start learning about the effects of climate change and how they can be slowed and reversed.
3. Commit to Small Changes
If you’re already on board with the idea of a greener planet and ready to start making an impact on a personal level, you can spend this Earth Day setting some small, manageable goals for your day-to-day life, like riding your bike to work once a week, or replacing your light bulbs with energy efficient models. These little things add up!
4. Write a Letter to Congress
Getting involved on a local and personal level is great, but with a new election cycle starting, it’s also crucial that our leaders know climate change and conservation are key issues, especially to young voters. This Earth Day, you can find your reps at www.whoismyrepresentative.com and send them a note to remind them you’ll be making your voting decisions with the planet in mind.
5. Support a Grassroots Movement
If you want to take your involvement a step further, or just don’t have a ton of faith in Congress (cause honestly, does anyone?) there are tons of organizations and groups out there going around bureaucracy to affect real change on local and global levels. Global Citizen has a list of 15 amazing grassroots efforts that you can support right now to have an impact, and with a little research you can surely find one that speaks to you.
