Earth Day 2020 - 50th Anniversary

Choosing Sustainability Together

This year marks the 50th anniversary of Earth Day. When Earth Day was first officially celebrated on April 22, 1970, not only did it spark a movement to raise awareness of the impact our actions have on the environment, it also marked a rare achievement in political alignment during that turbulent time of war. This environmental mission enlisted support from the rich and poor, urban dwellers and farmers, all political parties, and business and labor leaders. Let us remember that when we work together for a common cause, our unity has immense power to effect change.

At Anson Calder we encourage sustainability by crafting products to last a lifetime. We utilize materials that are natural and durable while making great efforts to reduce waste throughout the production process. In the coming weeks and months we look forward to sharing more details about our commitment to sustainability in a future Journal series. Here is a teaser from a previous Journal post on how we select our materials that last. Remember to subscribe to our emails so you don't miss these exciting updates.

Today we invite you to celebrate our beautiful world and how our global community can work together. Reflect on the many ways you can commit to be more earth-conscious and socially responsible. Here's a list of ideas we have compiled to help you participate in Earth Day today and continue forward in preserving our remarkable planet:

  • Find ways to be inspired by your surroundings and appreciate the beauty

  • Take a nature walk

  • Be creative in reusing items

  • Shop wisely by purchasing things that last rather than items that are disposable or need to be replaced frequently (a few suggestions we love: Wallet, Laptop Sleeve, refillable CW&T Pen, etc.)

  • Join with others around the world in digital activities celebrating Earth Day

  • Think about the thre "R"s to conserve natural resources and landfill space: Reduce, Reuse and Recycle

  • Volunteer for a community clean-up

  • Educate others

  • Conserve water: the less you use, the less runoff and wastewater evenutally end up in the oceans

  • Utilize reusable shopping bags

  • Plant a tree

  • Don't send chemicals into the waterways

  • Bike and walk more, drive less

  • Carpool

  • Flip off a light switch when you leave the room
