As you walk upon the sacred earth, treat each step as a prayer ~ Black Elk
Our beautiful blue green planet we all call home is full of wonder. From glaciers to rainforests to rivers to desserts to vast oceans; we are surrounded by life, energy and intricate ecosystems.
Scientists however continue to warn us of irreversible environmental changes to the earth, our natural resources and human development as the effects of our mistakes are growing bigger and changing our planet at a relentless pace.
A planet being pushed to the edge will eventually turn on us ~ Marco Lambertini WWF International
Earth Day - also now known by the United Nations as International Mother Earth Day - is celebrated globally on 22 April to remind us of the beauty of life on Earth, the synergy of her dynamic ecosystems and allow us a moment to reflect on the damage that is being done to our planet and how humanity can help.
Earth Day calls for a collective global responsibility to promote harmony with nature to reach a balance among the social, economic and environmental needs of present and future generations. It provides a platform to raise awareness to the challenges facing the well-being of the planet and humanity at large. We need more dialogue and action from all global citizens of all ages on the issues that are threatening life on this planet; climate change, deforestation, air pollution, land degradation, toxic waterways to name a few.
This Earth Day 22nd April 2018 - Bhumi has pledged to plant 1 tree with every Bhumi purchase made from 19th March - 22nd April. Our goal with your help is to plant 500 trees with the incredible organisation 15 Trees.
The trees will be planted on National Tree Day July 29th 2018 and each tree will be trackable of where it was planted and by whom. Bhumi will always be committed to looking after the Earth and Her People with certified organic products, Fairtrade practices and sustainable company initiatives.
It's surely our responsibility to do everything within our power to create a planet that provides a home not just for us, but for all life on Earth ~ David Attenborough
