“We can choose to be caretakers rather than destroyers of the planet we share.” – Earth Day Org.
Today marks 51 years since the first Earth Day in 1970! A day dedicated to raising awareness and support for the need to protect and take care of our beautiful planet. But let’s face it – every day is, and needs to be, Earth Day 🌱🌎
At Accio we believe it is the responsibility of every business to be conscious of their impact on the Earth, to actively reduce their carbon footprint and to raise awareness about the crucial need for sustainability and environmental protection. No sweeping under the rug - time to wake up and smell the coffee!
Over the decades, Earth Day has joined hundreds of millions of people in the environmental movement through educating, volunteering and making social and political change. The first Earth Day took place in the United States on 22nd April 1970; sparked by more than a decade of major overconsumption of the Earth’s resources, with little regard for it as a living organism to be passed onto future generations. Environmental activists joined together to push against pollution, oil spills, loss of wilderness and extinction of wildlife.
We’re always looking for further ways we can reduce our impact and bring positivity, transparency and light to what we do. Sustainability is at the forefront of our mission; it determines the way we run our business as well as the production, technology and transportation of our products.
Accio LED lights use 90% less energy than halogen bulbs, reducing the amount of CO2 emissions your home emits. Our lights are built to last with a lifespan of 15,000-30,000 hours – a longer lifespan means less to landfill. We only use zero-plastic, recyclable packaging, which means less waste when you invest in an Accio light, compared to other Smart Light brands.
Not only this, you can be sure that we are also taking active steps behind the scenes to be part of putting environmental concerns on the front page for everyone. We recently became a friend of Treedom and planted 15 trees; supporting this cause aids CO2 absorption, reforestation and biodiversity. It also directly finances local farmers and offers training and income opportunities. You too can get involved with the Treedom cause and follow our 15 trees here!
