You may be thinking, what impact can Earth Day have on making real lasting change? The truth is that it’s very difficult to change the course of governments and institutions, but we can all play a small part in making changes in our everyday lives.The Body Shop in particular has made great strides in this area, and has been a leader in sustainability for over 40 years. Simply making the switch to skincare, body care, haircare and makeup that is produced ethically and sustainably means that you can start to make a difference.
What is Earth Day?
Earth Day began in 1970 as a method of bringing attention to environmental issues across the globe. Since its earliest days, Earth Day has placed a strong focus on education. The damaging effects of pollution and other by-products of business are now well known, but it’s worth remembering that wasn’t always the case.
With the health of the planet on a knife-edge, Earth Day 2022 presents a genuine opportunity to ramp up the speed of change. The theme this year is ‘Invest In Our Planet’ with a real focus on what all of us can do to make a difference. Events will be taking place around the world, with plenty of activities planned across the UK, including public presentations and digital gatherings.
Earth Day is all about highlighting the fact that It’s not too late to steer the planet away from its current damaging course, something that brands like The Body Shop are fully behind.
About Rainforest Trust
Helping to protect the tropical forests and endangered wildlife of the world is the important task undertaken by the Rainforest Trust. They do this by working with communities and like-minded organisations in the areas directly associated with the depleting forests. The British charity has been championing global ecology for over 30 years, and to date have helped to protect over 30M acres of precious tropical habitat across the globe.
"Every second, an acre of forest is lost to deforestation."
Just consider that quote for a moment. In the time it has taken for you to read this page so far, an area of forest the size of nearly 37.81 football fields or 750 tennis courts has been lost. Rampant deforestation for logging, mining and agriculture must not be allowed to continue.
Rainforest Trust take swift conservation action when and where it is needed most in the following ways:
- Helping create legally-recognized protected areas for forests and their species
- Working with local communities to protect wild lands
- Protecting endangered species
- Educating people around the globe
Conservation of the Earth’s rainforests is a concern shared by everyone on Earth Day. 100% of donations made to Rainforest Trust UK end up in the places they are needed most. With ambitious plans to lock up 15 billion tons of carbon by 2025, the fight for some of the globe's most beautiful and important forests goes on.
