Our planet has been called the “Goldilocks planet.” Just like in the story of “Goldilocks and the Three Bears,” conditions on Earth have been considered “just right” for living things to exist (at least compared to other planets). As we know it now, it’s warm, but not too warm to function. And it has water, but not too much water to drown us all, or too little water to dry out the entire planet. Since Earth Day first launched 46 years ago, it’s no secret that if there aren’t major changes on how we treat our planet, that things won’t be “just right” in the future.
At UncommonGoods, our mission has always focused on having a positive effect on people and the planet. Strive to have uncommon impact is a big part of both our history and our company culture. However, we know there is big room for improvement both inside and outside our walls. This Earth Day, we encourage you to make a positive, sustainable impact, whether it’s switching to a reusable lunch tote, or participating in a community tree planting. We want to see how you’re celebrating Earth Day! Share your actions on Instagram for the chance to win a $50 gift card.
