Acorn's Top 5 Ways to Celebrate Earth Day
Here at Acorn, we're focused on sustainability. That is why this Earth Day we're very excited to launch a brand new recycled collection! So many of our products already use recycled materials for their boxes and hang tags. So why not build a whole recycled collection too!
In honor of Earth Day we've decided to put together a list of our Top 5 ways to celebrate this year!
1. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
We've all heard the saying. Follow the three R's! But this shouldn't just be for Earth day. We should try to make sustainable decisions all the time. Did you know that more than 15 million tons of used textile waste is generated each year in the United States alone? This came as a shock to all of us and we decided that we're going to take steps against this. And so the Acorn Recycled Slipper collection was born! Meet our first recycled style, The Camden Moccasin!
2. Get Outside
One of the easiest ways we can protect the planet is through experiences! So get outside and experience some nature! Sometimes its easy to forget that there is a whole world outside your office or home. Here at Acorn our employees and customers love to show off our footwear outdoors. So we decided to offer a new line of footwear that goes beyond slippers! Meet the Acorn Everywear Sandals. We wanted to find a way to bring Acorn comfort with you wherever you may go!
3. Plant a Tree
This may sound crazy but imagine the impact if everyone decided to plant a tree today! Trees provide food and oxygen. They help save energy, clean the air, and help combat climate change. So what better way to celebrate Earth Day than simply planting a tree!
4. Pick up Trash
Picking up trash might not sound like the most exciting Earth Day activity, but its one of the most important! You can even make a game out of it with your friends and family. The person with the largest bag at the end wins! Make sure that you're wearing gloves and that you properly recycled trash if possible. Who knows maybe one day a piece you pick up will end up becoming part of our recycled styles!
5. Enjoy Yourself!
Earth Day is meant to bring people together under one mission, make the planet a better place! So get out there and have fun!
