Earth Day Brainteaser – can you find the footprint?


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?

Earth Day Brainteaser

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…

The Earth Day website has a number of suggestions for how you can get involved – from eating less meat to reducing your carbon footprint. Why not try one of the following ways to raise environmental awareness amongst your staff:

  • Create a company act of green – it can be anything from pledging to turn the lights off every night or switching to energy efficient appliances. You can encourage your employees to create their own individual acts of green too. You could even give a prize for the best!
  • Have an eco-themed bake sale and donate the money to The Canopy Project, which aims to fight climate change by planting trees.
  • Have a veggie day – Earth Day invented ‘Meatless on Mondays’ but you can go meat free any day of the week – you could even make a competition out of it and put on a veggie potluck with a prize for the best dish. We love Chocolate Covered Katie and My New Roots for great plant based meal ideas.

What else going on for earth day?

NASA is giving people the opportunity to ‘adopt a piece of land’ and learn about their adopted area using the same tools that professional researchers use

In the USA, worries about growing climate scepticism has led to ‘Marches for Science’ taking place across the country. In the UK there are sister marches planned in London, Bristol, Edinburgh, Manchester and Norwich.

Earth Day has been chosen as the release date of Disney Nature’s new film, Born in China, which follows the struggles for survival of three endangered species: the giant panda, the snow leopard and the golden snub nosed monkey.  

If you really want to make an impact on climate change, you’ll need a sustainability strategy that lasts more than a day. Cutting down your energy usage is a great place to start. Read our articles below for some tips and tricks:
