EmbroidMe Celebrates Earth Day's 45th Anniversary

January 15, 2015 // Franchising.com // With increasing concerns about the environmental threats of climate change, species extinction and increased chemical exposure, communities across the United States are taking action for the 45th anniversary of Earth Day. Building on the slogan A Billion Acts of Green®, the Earth Day Network is organizing campaigns to seek engagement around the world.

The first Earth Day was conceived in 1970, by Senator Gaylord Nelson of Wisconsin. After touring the devastation caused by a vast oil spill in the Santa Barbara, CA area, Senator Nelson saw the opportunity to bring government attention to man-made threats to the environment. The first day dedicated to Mother Earth was April 22, 1970; and with an estimated 20 million Americans participating, a new movement was launched.

Over the last four decades, environmental awareness has become a global, year-round mission which has been supported by legislation in the United States, including the Endangered Species Act, the National Environmental Policy Act and the Clean Air and Clean Water Acts.

"There is no better way to position a business as a leader than to take a proactive approach to a globally-recognized event such as Earth Day," said Christine Marion, director of retail operations for EmbroidMe. "EmbroidMe specialists can develop a promotional product for the 45th anniversary celebration that will extend the reach of any community’s efforts."

There are many opportunities to build a community program that targets a specific green initiative. Choose a location that needs beautifying or bring awareness to energy wastefulness. Focus on regional wildlife or recreational trails. Check local waterways or places to increase recycling efforts. Then, create a new slogan or join the A Billion Acts of Green® network, and support the campaign with promotional T-shirts, caps, water bottles, mugs or bags from EmbroidMe. Build a commitment to protect planet Earth.
