Read on to find out what the campaign was all about.
Friday 22nd April sees the return of the annual Earth Day. Here at Savoo we’re on a mission to raise awareness of this important event by partnering with Rainforest Trust UK and Suttons, the internationally renowned supplier of flower and vegetable seeds, young plants, bulbs and a whole host of other products for gardeners.
While Earth Day may be a global event, there are lots of little things we can do to make a difference to our immediate surroundings. Spending time in gardens and other outdoor places has long been known to support mental health, but the benefits don’t stop there. Planting selected seeds can help to encourage bees and other beneficial insects to visit your green spaces, which in turn has a knock on effect to the wider ecosystem.
What is Earth Day?
1970 saw the first Earth Day take place in the USA, marking the birth of the modern environmental movement. With an ambitious aim to educate the world about the damage being done by smoke and sludge being belched out by modern industry. While pockets of the population had environmental concerns, the stage was set for a larger discussion across the continent, and very soon the world.
Today, Earth Day is sadly needed as much as ever. With a real emphasis on urgency, our Earth is at a tipping point when it comes to the ravages of climate change. But all is not lost! The citizens of the world expect better from their governments and big business, resulting in Earth Day becoming the largest secular observance in the world.
We all can play a part in making the future a better place to live in, an ambition shared by Suttons.

With a history that stretches back over two centuries, Suttons has built up a reputation for quality and service in the horticultural industry. Since 1858 they have held the esteemed honour of the Royal warrant for supplying the Royal households with seeds.
Such extensive knowledge and experience means that Suttons are ideally placed to support this year’s Earth Day. With an ethically sustainable, socially responsive and environmentally sustainable approach to everyday operations, the company has made great strides in producing high quality products while limiting the detriment to the environment. A few examples being going 100% peat free at their nursery in Devon and introducing ambitious targets to reduce the amount of plastic used across the company.
Their Pollinators and Predators collection is especially note-worthy because it includes seeds for bees, butterflies and other beneficial insects.
