Earth Day 2017 is just about upon us rolling in on Saturday April, 22nd. Truth be told, I’m a mighty big fan of this big, blue marble we call home. I love the trees and critters too.
So with Earth Day approaching, I have to ask: are you just into making a buck with your business – or are you looking to make a difference too?
Earth Hour 2017 is just about upon us. It’s time to
“Turn Up The Dark”
Earth Hour 2017 coming up this weekend. In staying with my roots as an advocate for this big blue marble we call home, I like to dedicate a post to this event. So it’s time for a shout out for Mother Earth!
“Each year, millions of people around the globe unite for an hour to celebrate our amazing planet. Will you join us for Earth Hour in 2017?”
In 2016 over 12,700 major landmarks switched off the lights, 178 countries and territories participated and 2.4 million people got involved and took actions.
Considering all the craziness going on with our current reckless administration – wanting to strip away important protections for clean air and water like the EPA, this is important – now more than ever!
Earth Day 2016 is right around the corner on April 22 with many events occurring throughout the week.
While it may be viewed as just for “Treehuggers” if you are a business owner (one who wants to make the world a better place with their products and or services), then participating in a local Earth Day event could be a golden opportunity to introduce people to the great things you offer and or do!
Depending on where you live, many of these are free community events organized by a city’s local Sustainable Council and created to showcase companies, agencies and organizations that provide products, services, resources and information to assist and educate residents in making more sustainable choices.
Colorado Environmental Film Festival 2015
February 19-21, 2015
Taking a little break from “shop-talk” and staying near and dear to my environmental passion, this coming week marks the upcoming Colorado Environmental Film Festival taking place in Golden, CO. I actually wrote about this event back in 2013 (The Environmental Film Festival – Golden Colorado’s Little Gem) where I both attended and volunteered – (doing so this year too yay!) – and wanted to share this year’s event.
Direct from the CEFF website, a little info about the Festival itself:
“The Colorado Environmental Film Festival is a celebration of the
inspirational, educational, and motivational power of film.
The CEFF includes local and national feature length and short films for all ages, thought-provoking dialogue, festival celebrations for both filmmakers and audience members, children’s films, a filmmaker forum, and information from a variety of environmental groups. The festival presents informative and entertaining films that explore interconnected ecological, social, and economic themes. Audiences have the opportunity to be more than passive viewers – they will leave inspired, surprised, motivated, entertained, and transformed.”
Using the Power of Business as a Force for Good
Certified B Corporations are leading a global movement to redefine success in business.
“By voluntarily meeting higher standards of transparency, accountability, and performance, Certified B Corps are distinguishing themselves in a cluttered marketplace by offering a positive vision of a better way to do business.”
With a growing community of more than 1,000 Certified B Corps which include 33 countries spanning over 60 industries, they are working together toward one unifying goal: to redefine success in business.
Certified B Corps are not just about shareholders. They embrace a purpose beyond just earning money. What a concept?
