The digital hemisphere has been rampant with all things green and sustainability-focused, and now it’s time to honor Earth Day and align that stream of consciousness of yours with everything zero waste and green. The emerging concept of green consumption is of a practice that is strongly influenced by consumer values, norms, and habits and is closely related to the wonderful notion of sustainable development.
How can we better safeguard the environment through our consumer behaviors? How can we impact climate change, our ever-polluted seas and oceans, and skies in a positive way? It all starts with small but significant individual and collective habits. Start ‘Green Buying’ and go and get some inspiration at this year’s Eco Spring Fair.
Earth Day is a global event each year. As global ecological awareness grows, individual agency to help support environmental protection has also developed throughout the world – in towns and cities, and local hubs. Earth Day, depending on where you are in the world, is a day of political and civic participation. Whether its planting trees, cleaning up your local area, making a pledge to take sustainability measures in your home and communities, every act has great purpose and no matter how minute, culminates with the endeavors of others to produce real change.
The Bookworm has invited 35 vendors from across the city and from the local communities of fine artists, handicraft makers, fashion designers, organic food vendors, charity groups, and more to stop by and show us how one can produce and consume the green way. Support Earth Day, while celebrating the wonderful things our community has to offer and positively contribute to the campaign for further ecological awareness in Beijing.
