Making Everyday Earth Day

Making Everyday Earth Day

We strive to participate everyday in Earth Day 2021. We are mindful of the environment and our impact on it every day which is why we make beautiful gifts for the home that last a lifetime. The theme for this year’s Earth Day is “Restore Our Earth,” and we wholeheartedly embrace this mission. 

More and more of us recognize the fragility of our planet because of pollution, climate change, deforestation, and benign neglect. Our natural resources are precious, and we support efforts to protect our plant and bring awareness to critical issues. 

There are ways in which we can all become better stewards of our one and only planet. One way we participate is by joining a Community Supported Agriculture (CSAs), which supplies locally grown produce. Not only are CSAs good for our physical and mental health they also promote community building.

Partnering with The Food Project

Fields at the Food Project | Serve Kindness

One charity, of the many partnerships we have, and that we’ve partnered with since the start of Serve Kindness, is The Food Project. Their farming practices are designed to preserve and restore the soil.   

Our community produces healthy food for residents of the city and suburbs, provides youth leadership opportunities, and inspires and supports others to create change in their own communities,” according to their website

“Partnering with The Food Project has been fulfilling for us,” says Melissa Brooks, co-founder of Serve Kindness. “We love to support programs that teach youth leadership skills and the importance of lifelong community involvement.”

Give Back Through Purchase

Purchasing one of the bowl sets we’ve designed with Earth Day in mind allows our customers to give back to the charity of their choice from our curated list. Don’t see one that you’re interested in supporting? Right now we are looking for nominations for new charities.

“Sharing the work our charity partners do is fundamental to the Serve Kindness philosophy,” says Jillian Darling, co-founder of Serve Kindness. “They are truly partners in this journey to enhance well-being one bowl at a time.”
