today is earth day, a day to celebrate our wonderful planet and its incredible natural resources sustaining us. earth day is the perfect day to be aware of the impact of our actions on the environment and how we can protect the earth.
the earth provides us with the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the soil that grows our food. it is our home! at mallow we believe in celebrating earth day every day.
let’s give back and invest in our relationship with the earth. it starts with being mindful of our lifestyle; from the way we produce materials, to the way we consume, reuse, and dispose of them.
here are our 5 easy tips to help you make a positive impact on the earth:
- plant a tree or a shrub
planting trees is one of the best tools to tackle the climate crisis and keep earth’s temperature from rising. they give us oxygen, store carbon, stabilise the soil and give life to the world’s wildlife.
when you drink our vodka-based cocktails, you’re helping to plant trees. for every bottle of sapling vodka sold, a tree is planted. one tree can absorb up to 1.5 tonnes of carbon in its lifetime. making a bottle of vodka emits about 2.5kg of carbon, so you could say each bottle of Sapling pays back over 535 times.
- clean up your local park or beach
clean up litter from parks, beaches, or streets to prevent pollution and protect wildlife.
- reduce, reuse, and recycle
make a conscious effort to reduce your waste by recycling and reusing items. opt for reusable bags, bottles, and coffee cups, and recycle properly according to your local recycling guidelines.
- conserve water
water is a precious resource, so use it wisely. you can conserve water by fixing any leaks in your home, turn off the tap while brushing your teeth, taking shorter showers, and using water-efficient appliances.
- educate yourself and others
learning about environmental issues and sharing information with others is one of the most important things you can do for the planet. educate yourself about sustainable practices, climate change, and wildlife conservation, and inspire others to take action.
remember, earth day is not just one day, it’s a reminder to take care of our planet every day. by making small changes in our daily lives and advocating for environmental protection, we can all contribute to a more sustainable and healthier planet.
happy earth day!
