Let’s make it happen: Earth Day = Every day

22nd of April has been the day about Earth since 1970. The Earth Day celebrations have spread globally over the years, unifying the environmental groups and movements – at the end of the day, we are all working towards a common goal.

  • For a wise use of resources.
  • For a clean environment.
  • And for the health and wellbeing for all who live on this Blue Planet.

Earth Day can be seen as the birth of the modern environmental movement.

At the time, the Earth Day on 22nd April 1970 inspired 20 million Americans to take to the streets, parks and auditoriums to demonstrate against the impacts of 150 years of industrial development. This was a major action to unify the groups that had formerly fought individually against oil spills, polluting factories and power plants, toxic dumps, pesticides, freeways and the extinction of wildlife.

Each year, Earth Day focuses on a specific topic, which in 2021 is Restore Our Earth™ — covering natural processes, emerging green technologies, and innovative thinking that can restore the world’s ecosystems.

At Ari, we are proud to be part of this movement. Innovative technologies and solar-powered production processes are the foundation of what we do. Here are our top tips for doing your bit:

How to live a zero waste lifestyle?

Use your own canvas tote bag instead of another plastic or paper bag each time you spontaneously end up in a grocery store. And it doesn’t have to be a boring one. Have some fun. One of our favourite cotton bags is this

Use skincare & beauty products with refillable, rather than single-use, packaging. We love the Danish makeup artist Kirsten Kjaer Weis, who already launched the first 100% refillable certified-organic beauty line with plastic-free packaging in 2010.

Switch to DIY where possible. Love smoothies on-the-go, but not the disposable cups? Ari’s team has an healthy addiction to kencko, a Portugese brand that created a handy refillable smoothie-shaker bottle with freeze-dried organic fruit and veggie refills.

Reduce CO2 emissions. By using Ari’s refillable hand wash, you reduce the CO2 emissions from transportation by 300 times. You can order your own set with our beautiful aluminium dispenser bottle right here

The positive news is, more and more brands are working towards the conscious use of resources, designing reusable parts into their products and giving back by supporting conservation, reforestation or other charitable projects. Living a sustainable lifestyle is becoming easier every day. At Ari, we truly believe that restoring the Earth is not a far-fetched dream, but a reality.
