This April we’re excited to partner with local organizations Kiwassa Neighbourhood House and local artist Amanda Suutari to launch the social media campaign #EarthDaySeedingChange2021!
Starting April 1st, when you post your inspired actions to protect the planet you’ll be entered into our Earth Day draw to win locally- produced, planet-friendly prizes, including fine art prints, printed journals, along with other gifts donated by local businesses.
Our goal is to ignite our sense of collective power to make a difference during these times of isolation. #EarthdaySeedingChange2021 is about inspiring each other with all the creative ways we can care for the Earth. Actions are like planting seeds – they contain their own life force, and can take root and grow in places we might least expect.
How to participate:
- Take an inspired action between April 1st and Earth Day, April 22nd (see examples of actions below).
- Post a photo and caption of yourself taking the action on either our Facebook page or Instagram/Twitter with the hashtag #earthdayseedingchange2021 to enter a draw*.
- You’ll be able to check out the photo gallery of posts between April 1st and Earth Day by visiting this page:
- Randomly-selected winners will be announced on Earth Day (April 22nd).
- Prizes will include colourful, sustainably-printed art prints, journals, and postcards donated by local artist Amanda Suutari (printed by Hemlock Printers, one of the most progressive and sustainable print providers in North America), as well as random green-leaning goodies from local businesses (TBA).
- You get to feel awesome about taking action, feel inspired watching the gallery on this page fill up with images, and get some new ideas about how you can live a more Earth-friendly existence!
What kind of actions? Some examples:
- Picking up plastic from a beach or forest
- Planting pollinator wildflowers on your lawn or roadside (West Coast Seeds has some great pollinator mixes)
- Collecting coffee grounds from your local cafe to add to your compost
- Going plastic-free for a day (or longer!)
- Making a phone call or writing a letter to a local MP about an environmental concern such as old-growth logging
- Patching or altering an old garment to extend it’s life
- Making a donation to a local indigenous, environmental, or local food organization
