This Earth Day week, we invite you to walk around your town, notice the beauty we are given, reflect on where we stand.
Strides were made since 70's but concerns are many:
we lose species daily, we modify crops to something else than food, we pretend that trash can go “away”. We never made up for what was damaged, cut and drilled. The recent tragedy in Oso deserves reflection and reverence not only for the frightening power of natural disasters but also the weakness of this planet at mercy of our activities.
Can we all do a single small act of green, every single day? Can we support efforts, people, products that cause least harm?
Per our Snohomish artist Tim Noah’s newest song:
“On a Little Blue Marble in the Milky Way
There’s a million marvelous
Miracles happening every day ”.
So on April 22, 1970, 20 million Americans took to the streets, parks and auditoriums to demonstrate on behalf of a healthy, sustainable environment. That first Earth Day led to the creation of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the passage of the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act and the Endangered Species Act. In 2010 Earth Day it was estimated that at least 1.5 billion people participated in different global events and programs.
Please, share your ideas or programs you are taking to honor Earth Day. We will be glad to post them here! Email us info (at) NaturalClothingCompany (dot) com.

April 22nd coming soon. Join our Earth Day Walkabout in Snohomish. With over one billion Acts of Green® to date internationally, this is the largest environmental campaign in the world; we are proud to be part of it. This planet keeps lending us her resources and beauty for ages.
It is easy to get quite zealous about green life.
We are all in different places of commitment and interest of "greening" this planet. It is not our purpose, from the business view, to incite you into changing the whole wardrobe on a spot. But we do want to provide honest, affordable alternatives to traditional toxic laden textiles. The rewards are many-fold. Our skin and well-being (and of our children's) is enhanced by using natural fibers. Organic growers and manufacturers deserve all the support and backup, too.
But most important - unless we say "No!" to manufacturers of hazardous pesticides and insecticides, how can we expect clean, fresh streams, fish, plants and life? We do need to vote with our dollars for life without toxins.
