Thank you all!
In 1970 Earth Day emerged as a spontaneous student movement in the United States. Earth Day was intended to demonstrate to the Washington establishment and the public that there was an environmental movement in North America and that nature will now have a powerful lobby. April 22nd has been Earth Day since then. The popular action was founded by the socially committed US Senator Gaylord Nelson. In Canada, as in many other countries around the world, the Earth Day idea is closely interwoven with national environmental policy.
The 25th Earth Day was celebrated on April 22, 1995 as an environmental day of action by over 200 million people worldwide. Today there is Earth Day in more than 150 countries around the world. The aim of this campaign, which touches all nations, is to involve citizens and especially young people in a creative environmental project. To this day, the Earth Days have always remained neutral, providing support, networking and creating media presence for the many local environmental initiatives.
On April 22, 1997, a local Earth Day, the Earth Day Stuttgart, was held for the first time.
Earth Day as a podium and organizer: the actors are the people, associations, organizations, scientists, media who understand Earth Day as a stage for dialogue and all-round initiative, as a popular action for an ecologically influenced lifestyle and make their commitment public here. The program focuses on environmental education in schools, environmental public campaigns to develop an ecological, sustainable lifestyle, as well as the organization of symposia on local and global environmental strategies.
The German Earth Day movement is now combined in a national committee as a non-profit environmental organization based in Frankfurt / Main. The Earth Day International German Committee eV was founded in 1994 and primarily wants to expand and maximize the Agenda 1992 adopted at the UN Environment Summit in Rio in 21 and therefore calls on all citizens: "Do something for the earth, be environmentally fit and demonstrate your concern on Earth Day. "
The EARTH WEEK and Vintage Kontor
For every order that we receive during earth week, we save with our partner yook one square meter of rainforest.
Why do we focus on forest projects?
Trees use the climate-damaging CO2 from the air for their growth and are therefore not only an important, renewable raw material, but also very natural climate protectors. In addition, they filter rainwater, stabilize the soil, provide fresh air and are a central habitat for us humans and millions of animals, plants and insects.
With your purchase you are already doing something for the climate. Why? Because you only buy vintage products from us, things that have already been produced and therefore do not have to be re-manufactured.
