Earth Day 2018

This Sunday April 22nd is annual Earth Day and we want to share this year’s campaign and give some tips on how you can contribute to the preservation of our Earth.

End Plastic Pollution

This year’s Earth Day will focus on fundamentally changing human attitude and behavior about plastics in hopes of a significant reduction in plastic pollution. Human waste of plastics results in poisoning and injuring marine life to littering our beaches and landscapes to clogging our waste streams and landfills.

Know the Stats*

  • 9.1 billion tons of plastic has been produced to date
  • 9% of this plastic as been recycled
  • 6.9 billion tons of plastic become waste
  • 12% of that is incinerated, 79% placed in landfills
  • It’s been predicted that 12 billion tons of plastic will enter landfills or the environment by 2050

How You Can Help

  1. Educate. Download the Earth Day action kit and talk to colleagues, friends, and family. Make them aware of the negative power of plastics.
  2. Form a Clean Up Group. Pick a park you frequent or a road you pass daily and put in some good work. Some gloves, your recycling bin, and some elbow grease for a couple hours in the sun never hurt the planet.
  3. Shop Smart. Be aware of the products and companies you are purchasing from and the extensive packaging they use. Look for alternatives if you feel guilty about a product or brand you frequently use – chances are, a competitor exists with an environmentally friendly option.
  4. Enforce. It’s already tough to make daily-environmentally-friendly-decisions for ourselves… so stick up for mother nature because she can’t! It starts with just a mention “hey you know you can recycle that”.

Napier & Our Environment

We strive to continue to reduce our impact on the environment from all processes of the organization. We have strong partnerships with environmental groups such as Leave No Trace – an organization that educates on the importance of preserving the environment by reducing our impact on nature. We also have a partnership with Trees for the Future that guarantees a tree is planted every time a consumer purchases a Napier Backroadz Tent though their Plant-a-Tree program.
