Every Day is Earth Day at Juice Beauty
5 Ways to Celebrate Earth Day
Every Day is Earth Day at Juice Beauty and we have lived by our EcoValues every day of the year so Earth Day is our BIGGEST Holiday! Earth Day is coming up on April 22nd, and yes, our planet needs our attention more than one day a year, but if you are looking for some inspiration or ideas on how to get started, here are five initiatives you can take to help the environment.
1. Plan a Farm Area or Beach Clean-Up Day: Get together with friends or organize a company social, gather trash bags, Juice Beauty hand sanitizer, sunscreen or a moisturizer with SPF, and coordinate a farm/vineyard region or beach clean-up. On any given weekend, you might find our Juice Beauty founder, Karen Behnke, running and stopping to pick up trash in the Vineyard region in Sonoma county near our Juice Beauty certified organic farm.
2. Ride Your Bike: Go car-free for the day, reduce your carbon footprint, and ride your bike instead of getting in your car to commemorate Earth Day. Bicycle riding also conserves roadway and residential space, providing opportunities for less concrete and more plant life, and hey… it’s also a good workout!
3. Get Organic Produce from a Local Farmer’s Market: The food in the grocery store travels an average of 1,500 miles to get to you, contributing to pollution plus an increase in fossil fuel consumption and carbon emissions. When you buy locally, it’s traveled a shorter distance and of course buying organic means higher antioxidants and nutrients. Have we mentioned that organic ingredients in your skincare can be better for your skin AND protects the planet by avoiding pesticides?
4. Plant a Tree: Planting a tree only takes a few minutes but can make a lasting impact. If planting a tree isn’t realistic, we recommend donating to a reputable environmental non-profit that plants trees on your behalf. Trees cleanse the air and support wildlife.
5. Scatter Wildflower Seeds: Choose flowers native to your area and disperse the seeds freely. Flowers provide nectar and pollen to honey bees, hummingbirds, butterflies, and other pollinators.
