It’s April, and that means that we’re celebrating Earth Month & looking forward to Earth Day 2020 here at Primo Water. While leaving a positive impact on the environment is a part of our daily mission at Primo, we’re feeling a little extra inspired by the efforts of the Earth Month Network and the Earth Day Network this month.
WHAT IS THE EARTH MONTH NETWORK?
The Earth Month Network aims to eradicate environmental apathy by providing awareness, knowledge, education, stewardship, and activism towards global environmental issues. This group works hard to make sure that everyone is concerned about the environment and enthusiastic about taking care of this planet that we all call home.
LOOKING FORWARD TO EARTH DAY 2020
Another big part of April is Earth Day, which is also celebrating its 50th anniversary this year! The theme for this year’s global Earth Day 2020 event, celebrated on Wednesday, April 22, is: climate action. You can find ways to get involved at the Earth Day Action Hub.
YOU INSPIRE US TOO
At Primo, we consistently find that you, our customers, are our biggest source of inspiration. We love receiving messages & feedback about how living the Primo lifestyle has helped you and your families cut down on single-use plastic waste and live more sustainably. Like this message from Kim:
We know that over one million plastic bottles are purchased every minute and 91% of them are never recycled. It’s estimated that by 2050, there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish. And that breaks our heart.
But, thanks to the action that you take every time you purchase our 3- and 5-gallon bottles, we’re helping to reduce plastic pollution. In fact, 1,100 single serve bottles are saved by just one refillable 5-gallon bottle of Primo Water. Every time that you exchange or refill your empty bottle, you’re making a difference. And, we thank you for that!
Please continue to share your stories of how Primo helps you reduce plastic pollution using the hashtag #PrimoAction. Here’s an example from one of our Primo employees: “Taking our Primo rechargeable water dispenser with us on camping trips helps our family leave the campground as beautiful and waste-free as we found it. #PrimoAction”
Tell us what else you’re doing to show our planet some love this April. We would love to highlight your work throughout the month! And, find Primo Water near you.
