Earth Day is here once again, but this year it’s different for me. Maybe because I’m a little bit older (which pains me to say) or maybe because I’m a little more educated thanks to numerous campaigns and initiatives around the world. Either way, I’m truly understanding how important taking care of our Earth is – and I want to do as much as I can to help make this a better place for me and my children, whenever I have them (no, Mom I’m not pregnant). In honor of Earth Day I wanted to share some of my favorite products, websites and people who have made it a priority to preserve the Earth whether it be the land, the air, or, my personal favorite, the ocean. I hope these inspire you or at least keep you entertained for fifteen minutes. I’d love to hear from you: what are some of your favorite initiatives, blogs, products, spokespeople who are dedicated to taking care of the environment?
Dedicated to protecting and enhancing our oceans and beaches.
Dr. Sylvia Earle If you don’t know about Sylvia, you’re missing out. Such an inspiration. Support her cause here. Watch her documentary Mission Blue:
Method Their founders ‘set out to change the world by creating beautiful cleaning products that are as kind to the planet as they are tough on dirt.’
New Belgium Brewing I feel confident saying this is Dan’s favorite since he’s a HUGE fan of their Fat Tire beer. Among its environmentally-friendly practices: they monitor and records all of their energy use, waste production and emissions and recycles, reuses or composts more than 75% of the waste produced in manufacturing.
