Earth Day 2023: Invest In Our Planet

Earth Day 2023: Invest In Our Planet

As we approach Earth Day (April 22nd), it’s a great time to reflect on our planet and what we can do to protect it. This year’s theme for Earth Day 2023 is ‘Invest in our planet.’ But what does this mean, and why is it so important?

‘Invest in our planet’ is a call to action for individuals, governments, and businesses to prioritize the health and well-being of the planet. It’s a reminder that the actions we take now will have a significant impact on the future of our planet and the generations to come.

Investing in our planet means making conscious decisions to reduce our carbon footprint, conserve resources, and protect biodiversity. It means using renewable energy sources, reducing waste, replanting rainforests and promoting sustainable practices. By investing in our planet, we can create a more resilient and sustainable future for all.

Shouldn’t every day be Earth Day? Absolutely, but it’s also a great opportunity to raise awareness and educate people about the current state of the planet and the steps we can take to make a positive impact. Earth Day also provides an opportunity for individuals and communities to come together and take action. Whether it’s organizing a cleanup event, planting trees, or advocating for policy change, Earth Day can be a powerful catalyst for positive change.

On April 22nd, we will be donating 25% of all sales to our partners at 'Canopy'. Canopy is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to protecting the world's forests, species, and climate. They focus on creating sustainable supply chains and advocating for the conservation of forests globally.

Canopy is ‘investing in the planet’ day-in, day-out. Working alongside leading fashion, publishing, and packaging companies, Canopy helps them develop policies that promote the use of sustainable fibres and reduce the impact of their supply chains on the world's forests. They also work with governments to implement policies and regulations that protect forests and promote sustainable development.

TAMGA has been a member of Canopy's 'Canopy Style' campaign for several years now, a project that works with fashion brands, retailers, designers and viscose fabric producers to ensure that no endangered forests are logged to produce their garments. It’s not widely known, but the viscose-rayon fabric is made from wood pulp, and more than 200 million trees are logged every year to produce it.

Canopy has also been successful in creating partnerships and lobbying for the protection of critical forest ecosystems. Through its partnerships with the World Wildlife Fund, Rainforest Alliance, and many other organizations, Canopy continues to successfully lobby and ensure the conservation of forests worldwide. This Earth Day, it’s essential to remember that protecting the planet is not a one-time event but an ongoing effort. Investing in the planet means giving back at least a little more than we take, ensuring that our natural environment thrives and provides for all species.
