World Environment Day is a United Nations initiative celebrated on June 5th every year. The goal is to encourage awareness and action for the protection of our environment.
Celebrate World Environment Day!
The foods we eat, the air we breathe, the water we drink and the climate that makes our planet habitable all come from nature.
Yet, these are exceptional times in which nature is sending us a message:
To care for ourselves we must care for nature.
It’s time to wake up. To take notice. To raise our voices.
It’s time to build back better for People and Planet.
This World Environment Day, it’s Time for Nature.
UN World Environment Day
The theme for 2020 is biodiversity - which we understand is urgent and existential. Whether we think about bushfires in Brazil, the United States, and Australia, the global pandemic we are currently fighting, or the many species that are at risk of extinction year after year, nature is sending us a message.
If the past few months have demonstrated anything, it’s that change is possible and necessary. As the world is on pause, now is the time to reflect on our actions and choices. It’s never easy and compromises have to be made, but going in a new direction is important.
Our mission when Green Beaver was founded was to offer products with safe ingredients so that chemicals would not be a part of our daily life and be a danger for us and our family. We are very proud of the work we were able to accomplish, but know that we can improve and still do better. We believe that change doesn’t come overnight - it is a long process in which we all have to take part in. That’s why we are always looking for your feedback on our products and practices- and love your suggestions on how we can be better as a company, but also as actors of our communities.
Hoping for change doesn’t mean everything will be perfect in a heartbeat. The road will be a difficult one and tough choices must be made. But together, it is possible.
