Every April 22nd, people around the world stop and take a moment to celebrate the beautiful planet that we live on. While this year’s Earth Day celebrations may take on a slightly different shape – with many countries around the world staying home to flatten the curve – there are still many ways to support environmental protection and learn about conservation efforts from home. This holiday is one of Hawkins International’s favorites, and we’ve rounded up a few ways to engage in Earth Day initiatives this year.
Shop for Sustainability
From investing in jewelry that makes an impact, like The Bushcamp Company’s ELE Collection, to using this time at home to audit household products and buy reusable containers that will not clog landfills, your small purchase today can help make an impact that will benefit future generations. Read more about how you can shop to support Earth Day initiatives in this blog post.
Support Wildlife Conservation in Future Travels
While travel may be on pause for the moment, now is the ideal time to whip out your bucket list and plan future trips that preserve natural ecosystems. What’s at the top of our list? We’re planning a visit to Antigua’s Jumby Bay Island to watch Hawksbill Turtles hatch on their beaches and a safari in Africa to support Wilderness Safaris Namibia Desert Lion Conservation project.

Bring Earth Day Activities Home
Whether you choose to spend the day in your garden or opt for an evening watching Planet Earth on the couch, there are endless ways to virtually honor Earth Day this year. Our friends at Montage Hotels & Resorts have an engaging line up of children’s activities themed around nature, and Destin-Fort Walton Beach, Florida’s Adventure Anywhere platform is dedicating this week the theme of ‘Protecting Our Environment.’ Head to this blog post to read more.
Even if it’s opening a window to breathe in the fresh air for a few minutes or jotting down a list of National Parks that you’d like to visit in the future, find a way to celebrate and acknowledge this beautiful planet that we live on. We wish everyone a safe, healthy Earth Day.
