April 22nd is Earth Day, a day when the entire world actively celebrates the earth we live on. Many people and organizations around the world will demonstrate their support for environmental protection in many ways. Some will plant trees, utilize alternative environmentally-friendly energy sources, pick up trash near the freeway, and more. People all show their support in different ways; either as an individual or team. There is no wrong way of celebrating Earth Day, as long as what you do that day is in support of bettering the environment.
One of the biggest ways people like to contribute on Earth Day is by donating to charities that are determined to make the environment a better place. While there are many amazing organizations in the world, there are 5 that we thought stood out to us as a team and company. Our top 5 Earth Day charities are as follows:
An organization known for planting 10 trees for every $1 they receive. They are first on our list because without trees, not only would there be no oxygen to breathe but there would be no Beech trees to make soft, breathable fabrics, you find in products like the Dria Cover. ; )
An organization that takes care of the ocean around us by protecting the coral reef and marine life below. This is second on our list because we love living in beautiful San Diego, California, and the ocean is a major reason why. We would like to preserve the beauty of our beaches and oceans, not only for our enjoyment but our children’s children to get the chance to love them as well.
An organization that that utilizes solar energy to help propel developing communities in the right direction. Third, for fact that they are doing more than creating energy to power communities. Solar energy is allowing them to contribute to education, agriculture, health, enterprise, and more within these communities and make life better for everyone involved.
If Apple and Samsung can have lawyers on top of lawyers… why can’t the planet have a few also? This is an organization that gives Earth the legal protection it deserves by paying for lawyers and lobbyists to work in support of the environment. We really respect the mission of this organization and seeing the powers of professionals, such as lawyers, being put to use in admirable ways.
An organization that sets out to conserve the earth’s ecosystems. They believe that the better the water and air are on Earth, the better the people and animals will be on it. This, of course, made our top 5 for the reason that their focus is to better the environment for everyone. There are many respiratory issues, among other environment-related health issues, that we are seeing more and more of in our little ones daily. It is calming to know there is an organization out there aiding in the elimination of sources that lead to these types of health issues.
While there are many amazing Earth-friendly organizations out there, these are the top 5 we saw as in alignment with the values of our team and company. We would like to know what your favorite organizations are and why. Can you tell us how does they affect you? Please share. Maybe in the future we will include your mentioned organization in our list.
