I’m big on doing things that help the environment as much as possible, so much so that it’s a big theme in my next novel, ARROW. With warming temperatures, shrinking ice caps and bigger hurricanes, the feeling that we need to protect the planet we call home is bigger than ever. So in honor of World Environment Day today, a guide about environmentally friendly gifts is in order.
World Environment Day is similar to Earth Day, just older. According to National Today, it “was created on the first day of the first-ever UN conference which focused on humans and how they interact with the environment.” It debuted in 1974 in Spokane, Washington, and has been celebrated by countries around the globe. In 2019, China hosted World Environment Day with the slogan “Beat Air Pollution,” and studies have shown that air pollution has been a contributing factor in the devastation of COVID-19.
So for this year’s World Environment Day, consider the gifts below for the environment-loving friends and family on your list.
For a subscription box that loves the Earth as much as you love the person you’re giving it to, give Earth Love. Earth Love calls itself “the premier subscription box for conscious eco living” for a reason. Each box contains sustainable and environmentally friendly products, including books, wellness, snacks, tea, skincare, and more. And they’re all cruelty free, vegan, fair trade and from businesses that pride themselves on being friendly with our planet. What could be better?
If your loved ones like to be with nature in all the products they use, introduce them to Purify Me. The company is dedicated to creating detergents, soaps and cleaners without harmful chemicals. It’s a family friendly and environmentally friendly company.
