Established in 1970 after a horrific oil spill in California, Earth Day is celebrated on April 22 annually in the United States. Not only is it about spending time outside and reconnecting with nature, but this holiday also aims to raise awareness and advocate for climate-related issues.
One important theme of Earth Day is investing in our planet. This means that businesses all around the world need to act now. If they don’t take action, there will be no future investments to make, as climate change will affect more than just our economy. We’ve seen many organizations and companies attempt this in the past year by engaging in more sustainable practices.
We have compiled a list of brands and companies we think to hold sustainable values that align with the goals of Earth Day.
