earth day 2010.

yesterday, april 22nd,  was earth day 2010, a yearly event marking the anniversary of the modern environmental movement founded in 1970 by gaylord nelson, a former u.s. senator. much is published in the media about the peril we are putting our plant into, but do all of us really make an effort to do our bit? earth day is not just about highlighting the cause, but also encouraging people to get involved and make a change [even if it’s a small one] that will benefit the environment. check out www.earthday.org to find out more.

as you know, here at becothings we’re big supporters of any initiative that paves the way for a greener future… and we believe that everyone can do their bit to make this a reality. there are lots of little things you can do which will not only help out the plant but will also make your life a little easier – it’s win win situation really! simple things you can do include:

• paying your bills online rather than receiving paper print outs.
• but local and organic foods, supporting local farmer’s markets and stores.
• if you’re a morning coffee fan then use a flask rather than a paper cup [which will also save on getting burnt fingers!].
• try and have at least one day a week where you walk rather than drive or use public transport [time to tone up for the beach boys and girls!].
• turn off lights and appliances when not in use [saving you money as well as helping the planet].
• recycle and reuse.
• use a reusable shopping bag instead of plastic carriers… i’ve heard there’s this rather nifty BecoBag you all might like!
• buy Beco! [ok, cheeky plug, but our products are environmentally friendly!]

these are just a few ideas… there’s loads of things you can do, both big and small, which will make a difference. when you think about it, our planet does a lot for us… it’s time we do our bit for it.
