How to Celebrate Earth Day:

Celebrating Earth Day at home is a great way to show your support for the environment. There are lots of easy things you can do to make a difference. Here are some of our favourite ways to celebrate Earth:

Get outside and enjoy the beauty of nature. 

Take a hike, go for a walk, or just sit and appreciate the view. Getting outside is a great way to connect with the earth.

We recommend journaling during this time,  to really reflect on your experience and how it makes you feel. 

Plant something! 

Trees and flowers are a great way to spruce up your yard and offer some much-needed habitat for local wildlife. Easy-care trees to plant in your backyard  include:

- Fruit trees like apples, cherries, and plums 

- Flowering dogwoods 

- Serviceberries  

- Redbuds 

Support sustainable brands.

Sustainable fashion and accessory brands are on the rise. This Earth Day, consider supporting a sustainable brand that uses eco-friendly materials and practices ethical manufacturing. 

Our Kaffe collection features a sustainable watch face crafted out of recycled coffee beans. This classic, an elegant timepiece is stunning and eco-friendly! 

Educate yourself and others about environmental issues. 

Research ways to reduce your carbon footprint, and share what you've learned with friends and family. 

Make some sustainable swaps in your everyday life.

Bring a reusable water bottle with you when you go out, use energy-efficient light bulbs at home, or compost your food scraps. 

Volunteer for an environmental organization. 

Donating your time is a great way to support the cause. We recommend checking out local organizations that are working to make a difference in your community. 

There are lots of ways to celebrate Earth. By doing something small, you can make a big difference. So get out there and show the earth some love!
