Earth Day Challenge - Day 1: Plant a Tree
Across the globe, people have begun searching for ways that they can celebrate Earth Day and Mother Nature’s gifts while still staying safe at home and maintaining responsible social distancing practices. It is during this time, when many of us are feeling cooped up in our houses, that we begin to feel even more grateful for the beauty of nature, and wish to do our part in protecting the earth and its environment.
This is why we decided to honor our planet with a week-long challenge to help motivate and inspire others to give thanks where thanks is due. And we thought: what better way to begin our challenge than by nurturing a greener Earth through planting something new? That’s right — for the first day of our Earth Day Challenge, we invite you to go out and plant a new tree in your backyard or a public space (with permission, of course!).
Why Plant a Tree?
We’re going to go out on a limb (pun intended!) and say that one of the cheapest and easiest ways to tackle the climate crisis and show the Earth some extra love is through planting trees. Trees naturally absorb pollutant gases such as nitrogen oxide and sulfur dioxide, filtering particulates out of the air and trapping them within their leaves and bark. This helps significantly reduce the atmospheric carbon count and slows the rate of global warming. What’s not to love?
Let Love Grow
We cannot wait to show our love for the earth this week by completing today’s first challenge. But the fun doesn’t stop here! Join us in celebrating our beautiful blue planet all week long by visiting our blog for fun, earth-loving activities each day of the week.
And to make this Earth Day Challenge even more exciting, we will be conducting a giveaway at the end of this week to win four essential oils from our Organic line — Organic Lemon, Organic Tea Tree, Organic Lavender, and Organic Eucalyptus! Simply visit our Instagram or Facebook page and let us know at the end of the week which challenges you completed for a chance to win! Which challenges are you most excited to complete?
