Earth Day Gives us the Opportunity to Reflect on our Environmental Impact
Each & Every one of us at Vermont Woods Studios works here for a reason; we are passionate about Vermont furniture and we are passionate about keeping our forests thriving. We love the outdoors, and we love the environment. Earth day is very special to us, and this year we’ve decided to each make a pledge towards making our everyday lives more eco-friendly. It’s easy to forget about the impact of even the smallest choices we make sometimes, and we’re excited to be more environmentally conscious this year.
This Earth Day, I pledge to….
Peggy: I pledge to buy more organic and bird friendly coffee for the office.
Douglas: I pledge to stop using plastic water bottles. My daughter and I use 20+ a week when working out– we’re both going to start using large glass mason jars instead!
Dennis: I pledge to maintain the bird houses I just built and put up around my house.
Liz: My pledge is to create a compost bin and start composting at my cabin, as I’ve been wanting to for a long time!
Sean: My pledge is to buy less clothes this year and to donate all of my old or unwanted clothes to charity!
Michelle: I pledge to eat more food from my own garden this year.
Loryn: I pledge to drive less since I will be buying a bike soon!
Kelsey: I pledge to grow monarch-friendly plants outside of my apartment.
Nina: My pledge is to collect rainwater and use that to water my garden, rather than wasting water from the faucet!
So what’s your Earth Day pledge? Remember that even a small change in your lifestyle can make a huge difference in our planet! We’d love to hear what you’re eco-change is going to be this year. Let us know on Facebook or send us a Tweet!
