Earth day is April 22nd, and we’ve created a nifty little brain-teaser to encourage businesses to remember their carbon footprint.
Can you spot the foot amongst the leaves below?
Found the foot but wondering what this Earth Day business is all about?
Earth Day, run by the Earth Day Network, aims to raise awareness about climate change and sustainable development through a variety of campaigns and activities. The day was held for the first time in 1970 and is considered to have launched the modern environmental movement. On last year’s Earth Day, the historic Paris Accord was signed. This year, the network hopes to build on that momentum.
2017’s Earth Day campaign aims to achieve global environmental literacy by 2020, the aim being that – through policy development and engagement – all future students will graduate as environmentally aware citizens.
How small business can celebrate earth day…

Super helpful and easy to work with
"Recommend this company in a heartbeat - Nicole Borneuf was super easy to talk to, was not pushy in the slightest, very helpful and replied with all my questions very professionally and did all she could to help. I had to deal with a few companies to sort my business energy out, all but Nicole were too pushy for my liking and I refused to follow through with them. Thank Nicole - you are a credit to your company, thank you for making the stressful energy change so easy."This review was posted by Mia Drew on the 29th of March 2017
An Extremely Competent Company
"Switch my business has not only helped my SME secure a good energy deal for the second year running but Jessica swiftly found a alternative supplier for me when I was let down on the day of switching by the new contractual provider I had chosen some 4 months previously. Being suddenly out of contract and without provider is everyone's energy nightmare. Greatest thanks."This review was posted by S McMillan on the 29th of March 2017

Quick & Easy
"Kabibi was very helpful and the whole process was very efficient. The one small reservation I had was that I was phoned up by Kabibi almost immediately having received my online quote - which wasn't enough time for me to finish reading the quotes! Fortunately she was able to assist me in a greater savings on both Gas & Electricity, and so as long as the switchover is seamless I will remain very happy with the service."This review was posted by Amanda Brown on the 21st of March 2017
