Do you remember what you were doing on April 22, 1970?
I know, some of you weren’t even born back then. Although I was definitely alive at the time, I was still a pre-teen who likely spent the day at school, watching soap operas on TV in the afternoon, and then bicycling to the park with my friends after supper, avoiding homework. I had no idea that what would become an international movement was born on that very day.
Since then, Earth Day has grown to be a global phenomenon.
From its fringe beginnings, the event has expanded every year; by 1990 it had moved beyond the US borders to become an international event. By 2010, despite new conflict and those in opposition to the idea of climate change, “Earth Day prevailed and Earth Day Network. . . launched the world’s largest environmental service project—A Billion Acts of Green®–introduced a global tree planting initiative that has since grown into The Canopy Project, and engaged 22,000 partners in 192 countries in observing Earth Day.” [source].
In fact, according to the official Earth Day website, these days Earth Day is “the largest secular observance in the world, celebrated by more than a billion people every year, and a day of action that changes human behavior and provokes policy changes.” [source]
So of course I was more than delighted when one of my favorite companies, NuNaturals, asked if I’d participate in their Earth Day celebrations. And what celebrations they are!

As part of their month-long Earth Day festivities, NuNaturals is offering several special features to consumers:
During the full month of April, you’ll receive 20% off on all items ordered from the NuNaturals website. Just use the special code EARTH20 on checkout, and you’ll get 20% off! (note: this offer cannot be combined with other discounts).
In addition, NuNaturals will donate $1.00 to the Earth Day organization for every order over $45 they receive during this period. The Earth Day organization will plant one tree somewhere around the world for each dollar donated this way. That means your orders will help to plant trees all over the world. And better yet, NuNaturals has pledged $500! That means at least 500 trees will be planted on their behalf. How awesome is that?
Also pretty awesome? The new Ginger Syrup and Ginger Vanilla Syrup from NuNaturals! Like their Simple Syrup, Cocoa Syrup and Cocoa Mint Syrups before them, these are destined to become favorites among sweets lovers everywhere. I’ve used the syrups in drinks, smoothies, puddings, brownies, cookies, frostings. . . and of course the chocolate syrup is perfect over pancakes, waffles, and ice cream, too.
