Happy Earth Day!⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Today is the 50th anniversary of Earth Day. No, this is not a chance to debate climate change. Today is a chance to celebrate our home planet.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
As much as I encourage preserving and protecting leather goods to reduce consumption, today is a reminder that I should be working to help preserving and protecting the Earth.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
One item on my bucket list is to visit every U.S. National Park.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I love wild and beautiful places and this country is filled with them. I need to do my part to leave the planet better than I found it and help protect those places.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
That starts at home with my personal behavior and the choices I make to reduce my footprint, but it goes further. Those practices should be incorporated into my business.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
For Blackrock, I've started thinking of changes I can make to implement sustainable business practices and have a positive impact on the environment. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
A few components: ⁣⁣
✅ Plastic reduction: We currently use plastic jars, but is glass a better option?⁣⁣
✅ Supply Chain Analysis: Reducing resources used during the manufacturing process.⁣⁣
✅ Refillable program: Can this be implemented to be a sustainable way?⁣⁣
✅ Ecommerce Packaging: Look for ways to reduce waste.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
As I've started research, more questions have risen than answers but I am committed to learning and improving. Small changes over time will lead to a big impact. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
If you have resources you've found helpful or actions you've implemented, please share them. I'd love to hear about them so I can improve!⁣⁣
