Earth Day 2022: 5 Simple Ways to Show the Earth Your Love
Us Filipinos are no strangers to climate-related catastrophes like floods, droughts, and storms. Unfortunately, these disasters worsen year after year because of unethical mining, illegal logging, and other environmentally dehabilitating activities. But, there's still hope.
#LoveSows: Planting a Seed of Hope for the Philippines 🌱
In 2021, yet another strong typhoon hit the country, inspiring us to launch a reforestation drive called #LoveSows. As of March 2022, we have already planted 282 trees with our reforestation partner, One Tree Planted.
Every time you choose an ethical, environment friendly, and socially responsible Engagement Ring as the symbol of your love, we help better the world together. We are proud to hold sustainability at the heart of our craft, bringing only the finest ethically-sourced pieces to symbolize your pure and lasting love. 💎
5 Ways to Help Show Your Love for the Earth 🌏
History has proven that a single positive act, when practiced consistently, can spark much-needed change. Here's how you can do your part:
1. Conserve Electricity 💡
As kids, we learn to unplug appliances after use, choose energy-saving ones, and keep electronic devices to a minimum. Aside from saving money, doing these simple actions reduce our reliance on non-renewable energy sources as well.
According to research, fossil fuels still supply 84% of the world's energy. If you're able, switching to renewable sources like solar energy is another great way to give love to the Earth. ☀️
2. Switch to Eco-Conscious Brands ♻️
Every penny spent on ethical and eco-conscious brands is a vote towards a sustainable future. Years ago, lab-grown gemstones like Moissanite and Lab Diamonds are unheard of in the jewellery industry. Now, they're taking the world by storm, bringing heirloom quality pieces at a fraction of the cost and without the environmental concerns. 💎
This is concrete proof that consumer-led campaigns for sustainable products influence industries, including large corporations, to switch to sustainable practices. A beautiful ripple effect caused by every individual's eco-conscious choices.
3. Spread the Word 🗣
Your voice matters to louden the call to show our love for the Earth. Talk about the changes you've made for the environment and challenge friends to do the same! Be it on social media or offline, starting conversations about the environment contributes to the betterment of our world.
4. Plant Trees 🌳
Why trees? According to a study, "global tree restoration is our most effective climate change solution." They absorb carbon dioxide, provide cooling shade, and purify the air. More importantly, planting trees is simple and easy! You can:
- Join tree planting initiatives in your area by searching for nearby reforestation groups or starting one yourself!
- Support brands who help plant trees:
- Ecosia - A search engine that plants trees with every search
- Lucce Rings - One tree planted for every eco-brilliant piece
- Donate to reforestation organizations like One Tree Planted
5. Call for Accountability
Unfortunately, doing things on our own is not enough. Reports say that, "just 100 companies are responsible for 70% of global greenhouse gasses." As we make greener choices, these business should too.
Aside from private entities, you can also reach out to your public officials. By enacting climate laws, they can help overturn this environmental crisis.
