Every Day Is Earth Day April 22, 2015 15:26

At The Good Planet, every day is Earth Day.  However, we recognize the importance of taking a day to pause, reflect on our impacts, and choose how to act in the best interests of Mother Nature.  We only have one planet Earth, and we need to do everything that we can to protect it.

Last night, we attended a film screening of Bag It hosted by the Victoria, B.C. chapter of The Surfrider Foundation. While some of the facts presented in the film were familiar to us at the Planet, the way they were presented was refreshing.  The film has a way of reaching out to a variety of audiences, and has a couple of different versions (short and long) to make it even more adaptable to different groups of people.

The film examines the true cost of our "throw away" society, and encourages viewers to change their consuming habits.  Small changes can add up to an extraordinary amount if we all just pitch in and do our part.  If you are stuck on a place to start, or need help making some changes to your habits, let us know - we have lots of ideas, and products that can help you do just that.

We have included below the trailer for Bag It. We hope that you will take a few minutes to check it out, and help us spread the word.  Rise above plastic - be a voice for the earth.

From the Planet staff to you, happy Earth Day. Thank you for helping us be a part of the solution!
