Today, Water-to-Go is raising awareness of World Earth Day and we are encouraging you all to make a difference and do your bit for the planet with us.
Despite the global pandemic having a devasting effect on our personal health, today is also about the other global pandemic that is having a disastrous effect on our planet’s health. Our planet is under threat and we all need to come together to make a difference. Global temperature rise, shrinking ice sheets and ocean acidification are just some of the growing global problems that we should all be aware of. Climate NASA highlight that some of these problems are due to human activity.
“The current warming trend is of particular significance because most of it is extremely likely (greater than 95% probability) to be the result of human activity since the mid-20th century and proceeding at a rate that is unprecedented over decades to millennia.”
However, today is all about raising awareness of the problems but also the solutions that everyone can play a part in. Earth Day has never been more poignant.
From its very inception, Earth Day has been about civil society mobilization. In 1970, 20 million individuals — at the time, 10% of the U.S. population — mobilized to call for greater protections for our planet. This became the world’s first Earth Day. In the 50 years since that first Earth Day, EARTHDAY.ORG has created civically oriented innovative programs with partners both inside and outside of the environmental movement to tackle new challenges. Their environmental campaigns mobilize individuals around the world on issues from voter registration to environmental education. Every Earth Day can drive a year of energy, enthusiasm, and commitment to create a new plan of action for our planet.
About EarthDay.Org and solutions to the problem
The whole day and campaign is championed by earthday.org who have dedicated themselves to educating the world on this issue and to make a difference. They work with partners around the world to build a historic movement when citizens of the world will rise up in a united call for the creativity, innovation, ambition, and bravery that we need to meet our climate crisis and seize the enormous opportunities of a zero-carbon future.
“EARTHDAY.ORG’s mission is to diversify, educate and activate the environmental movement worldwide. Growing out of the first Earth Day in 1970, EARTHDAY.ORG is the world’s largest recruiter to the environmental movement, working with more than 75,000 partners in over 192 countries to drive positive action for our planet. “
They highlight that our world needs transformational change. This will require action at all levels, from business and investment to city and national government. This is everyone’s problem and everyone has to be held accountable. However, the good news is that we can all make a difference. As an individual, you yield real power and influence as a consumer, a voter, and a member of a community that can unite for change.
Earth Day highlight simple solutions that we can all adopt such as:
- Reduce, reuse, and recycle
- Volunteer for cleanups in your community
- Educate other people
- Conserve water
- Choose sustainable products
- Travel responsibly
- Plant trees
We would also add to use a Water-to-Go bottle to reduce single-use plastic waste!

It is up to each and every one of us to play our part and Restore Our Earth so that we can preserve its sustainable future.

Use a Water-to-Go bottle to reduce plastic waste
According to the Container Recycling Institute, each day in the US more than 60 million plastic water bottles are thrown away. This has become a huge problem as lots of plastic bottles escape the waste management system and are not recycled. Many end up in our oceans and waterways, causing huge problems globally. Plastic bottles can take hundreds of years to decompose in the landfills, continuing to release toxins into the environment.
A great way to eliminate single-use plastic bottles from your life is to use a Water-to-Go filter bottle. Just one of our 75cl filters will replace 400 single-use plastic bottles. Think of the difference this could make.
Our bottles contain our 3-in-1 filter technology that eliminates up to 99.9999% of all microbiological contaminants including viruses and bacteria from any tap or non-saltwater source.
So you can fill your bottle up from any river, stream or lake on your hike, and always have access to safe, drinking water anytime, anywhere. This is the perfect alternative to single-use plastic bottles so you can save weight, save money and help to save the planet all at the same time!
