BEYOND THE PRODUCT – VOLUME 3: PLANT PROMO (YES, IT’S A THING)
Reduce. Reuse. Recycle.
We’ve heard these words since we were kids, and while it seems like a simple enough way to live life a little greener, the 254 million tons of compostable waste not composted by Americans each year says otherwise. Now more than ever, there seems to be an increasing sense of urgency in doing our part as humans to preserve our planet for future generations, and with Earth Day 2021 right around the corner, we thought we’d share some ways you can contribute to ongoing Save the Planet efforts, while simultaneously marketing that awesome brand of yours.
Earth Day began in 1970, and it’s beginning is still considered to be the largest environmental movement in history to this day. The devastation our nation saw as a result of the Santa Barbara Oil Spill in 1969 is credited to helping create the modern environmental movement, and call-to-action efforts to raise awareness and create substantial environmental change has been celebrated nation-wide on April 22nd of each year ever since.
