Happy Earth Day to all who celebrate!
Here at Cottonelle we’re dedicated to developing Forest Stewardship Council® FSC® Certified products1 and today we invite you to join us as we plant our support for a better future.
Cottonelle’s parent company Kimberly-Clark has partnered with The Arbor Day Foundation in 2022 to celebrate their 150th anniversary by committing to planting 1.5 million trees through 2030 in forests of greatest need throughout the US and Canada. Kimberly-Clark is dedicated to protecting the environment and promoting the sustainable use of natural resources as it delivers its purpose of Better Care for a Better World.
For anyone celebrating for the first time, welcome! You may be wondering, what is Earth Day?
Earth Day marks the anniversary of the birth of the modern environmental movement in 19702. In the aftermath of a 1969 oil spill in California, Senator Nelson conceived the idea of mobilizing Americans to demonstrate against industrial pollution. An estimated twenty million people were inspired to join that day3. Fast forward to current day, Canada and the US celebrate on April 22, the date of the initial protest, but worldwide some countries use the date of the spring equinox (usually March 20th or 21st).
While Earth Day has been celebrated for over 50 years, Arbour Day in Canada (Arbor Day in the US) has a much longer history. First established in Nebraska in 1872, estimates are that a million trees were planted on that very first day4! The idea of a tree-planting festival was
proposed by J. Sterling Morgan and gained popularity across Canada throughout the late 1800s. Currently, in Canada Maple Leaf Day falls on the last Wednesday in September during National Forest Week. Ontario celebrates Arbour Week from the last Friday in April to the first Sunday in May, and Nova Scotia celebrates Arbour Day on the Thursday of National Forest Week.
