Earth Day is Monday, April 22!

Earth Day is an annual global event that more than 1 billion people in 192 countries take part in to actively support sustainability and worldwide initiatives to reduce our footprint on the earth.

This year's campaign is "Protect Our Species"

Over the next 5 days we will be posting information on what causes extinction and what you can do to protect our species!

WHAT IS HAPPENING TO THE SPECIES ON OUR PLANET?
A vast number of animals and plants have gone extinct in recent centuries due to human activity, especially since the industrial revolution. Many others are in serious decline and threatened with extinction, which affects genetic variation and biodiversity, among other issues.

WHAT IS CAUSING EXTINCTION?

OVER EXPLOITATION OF SPECIES
As the human population skyrockets so does consumption of animals and plants quickly became unsustainable. We have over fished our waters and hunted many species of animals to extinction.

HABITAT LOSS
Human development, deforestation, forest fires and use of pesticides all have an effect on habitat loss for our planets species

CLIMATE CHANGE
Changes in the Earth’s temperatures and weather patterns have impacted both plant and animal life

WHAT CAN YOU TO DO TO PROTECT OUR SPECIES?

REDUCE OVERALL CONSUMPTION
Consume less and be more mindful about what you consume.
• Choose products with eco-labels or that are safe and environmentally sustainable
• Buy food from local farmers who have sustainable practices.
