Creating Positive Social Change

Although a firm believer in capitalism, it is my heart for people that drives me and has been at the core of my entrepreneurial career since leaving home at 17, with nothing but $300 and a dream. That dream was to build a company where people wanted to work hard, felt they mattered and were encouraged to reach for the stars. I knew undoubtedly that to have the influence needed to make a real difference in the world you have to have money. Three years later, with money saved from working two jobs, and a new credit card with 21% interest, I started my first company. A Solar Powered Party In London.

EcoPlanet Bamboo's Solution to Microbeads. IN Creative ON 28 Feb, 2017 Over the past decade the increase in consumption of microbeads by the cosmetic industry has grown exponentially.

EcoPlanet Bamboo's Solution to Microbeads

Microbeads (or microplastics) are tiny pieces of plastic less than 2mm whose only purpose is to add an exfoliating feel good factor in toothpastes, shower gels and other cosmetics. With every single use, whether it's brushing our teeth or exfoliating our face, more than 100,000 of these non degradable, polluting pieces of plastic gets washed down the drain. And because of their small size they don't get caught by waste water treatment plants, inevitably ending up in our rivers, lakes, and eventually our oceans. In the United States, a ban on the manufacture of products containing plastic microbeads is set to take effect on July 1st this year.

The first Earth Day, on April 22, 1970, activated 20 million Americans from all walks of life and is widely credited with launching the modern environmental movement.

The passage of the landmark Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, Endangered Species Act and many other groundbreaking environmental laws soon followed. Twenty years later, Earth Day went global, mobilizing 200 million people in 141 countries and lifting environmental issues onto the world stage. More than 1 billion people now participate in Earth Day activities each year, making it the largest civic observance in the world. Growing out of the first Earth Day, Earth Day Network (EDN) is the world’s largest recruiter to the environmental movement, working with more than 50,000 partners in 196 countries to build environmental democracy.

The movement works through a combination of education, public policy, and consumer campaigns. Earth Day Network Board of Directors. GERALD TORRES, Board Chair, Jane M.G.
