Earth Day 2016 – All about trees

Earth Day 2016 – All about trees

We love trees! They’re our business. We rely on them for the majority of our healthy and nutritious ingredients. From almond and macadamia oils to lemon, bergamot, orange, mamey, carnauba, avocado…pretty much all our products’ incredible formulae owe their existence to trees.

 

And so do we, all of us, so the focus of this year’s annual Earth Day, held on April 22nd, is all about trees.

 

Trees clean the air, soil and water, making the earth a livable place.

 

Specifically:

◦ Trees help combat climate change - They absorb excess and harmful CO2 from our atmosphere. In fact, in a single year, an acre of mature trees absorbs the same amount of CO2 produced by driving the average car 26,000 miles.
◦ Trees help us breathe clean air - Trees absorb odors and pollutant gases (nitrogen oxides, ammonia, sulfur dioxide and ozone) and filter particulates out of the air by trapping them on their leaves and bark.
◦ Trees help communities - Trees help communities achieve long-term economic and environmental sustainability and provide food, energy and income.

 

    Trees are simply so essential to human wellbeing that just living close to trees makes us healthier and happier. Have you ever felt how calming it is just sitting under a tree?

     

    So what can we do to ensure trees are protected?

    ◦ Recycle paper – whenever you can, make sure you recycle paper and card products
    ◦ Use recycled paper, such as printing paper, toilet paper and kitchen paper.
    ◦ Consume fewer paper products – in the office and in the home, e.g. using reusable coffee cups and choosing paperless billing where available.
    ◦ Buy sustainable sourced wood products – try to use wood that has the Forest Stewardship Alliance seal
    ◦ Eat less beef – the cattle industry and its increasing need for land is especially hard on forests
    ◦ Plant a tree – the more trees on the planet, the healthier we’ll all be. Get involved in your local tree group
    ◦ Join organizations such as Planet Ark Environmental Foundation
    ◦ Activate your friends and social networks using #trees4earth

      Do something positive for Earth Day 2016! #trees4earth

      Día Internacional de la Tierra 2016

      ¡En Ere Perez amamos los árboles! Los árboles son parte de nuestro negocio, los ingredientes en nuestros productos dependen de ellos, como el aceite de almendras, macadamia, limón, bergamota, naranja, mamey, carnauba, aguacate. ¡Gracias a los árboles podemos desarrollar fórmulas tan increíbles en nuestros productos!

       

      Este 22 de abril es el Día Internacional de la Tierra y este año será dedicado en especial a los árboles.

       

      Los árboles pueden limpiar el aire, el suelo, el agua y hacer de este planeta un mejor lugar para vivir.

       

      Los árboles nos ayudan a:

      ◦ Combatir el cambio climático: absorben el exceso de CO2 de nuestra atmósfera. De hecho, en un solo año, un acre de árboles maduros absorbe la misma cantidad de CO2 que produce un automóvil al manejarlo 26,000 millas.
      ◦ Respirar aire puro: los árboles absorben olores y gases contaminantes, (óxidos de nitrógeno, amoníaco, dióxido de azufre y ozono) y filtran partículas en el aire atrapándolas en sus hojas y la corteza.
      ◦ Ayudan a las comunidades: los árboles ayudan a las comunidades a lograr la sustentabilidad económica y ambiental a largo plazo y proporcionar alimentos, energía e ingresos.

       

        Los árboles son tan esenciales para el bienestar de los seres humanos que simplemente vivir cerca de ellos nos hace sentir más saludables y felices. ¿Alguna vez has sentido lo relajante que es sentarte bajo un árbol?

         

        ¿Qué podemos hacer para proteger a los árboles?

        ◦ Recicla papel: siempre que te sea posible recicla papel y los productos de cartón.
        ◦ Utiliza papel reciclado, como papel de impresión, papel higiénico y papel de cocina.
        ◦ Consume menos papel, en la oficina, en la casa, por ejemplo, utiliza tazas para el café reutilizables y prefiere los recibos electrónicos cuando sea posible.
        ◦ Compra productos de madera sustentable, sólo compra madera que tenga el sello del Forest Stewardship Alliance seal.
        ◦ Consume menos carne, la industria del ganado y su creciente demanda por espacios de tierra está afectando a nuestros bosques.
        ◦ Únete a organizaciones ecológicas tales como Planet Ark Environmental Foundation o alguna otra en tu país o estado.
        ◦ Haz conciencia en tus amigos y en tus redes sociales postea #trees4earth.

         

          ¡Haz algo positivo este día Internacional de la Tierra 2016!
