Well here we are again approaching another Earth Day which is April 22nd this year. For fun, I thought we’d do some trivia regarding Earth Day. Let’s see how much you know (or guess correctly). The answers are at the bottom…no peeking.
Q. In what year was Earth Day created? 1969, 1970, 1971 or 1972
Q. Who is the founder of Earth Day? Lyndon B Johnson, Richard Nixon, Senator Al Gore or Senator Gaylord Nelson
Q. What United States agency was a result of Earth Day? Rural Development Agency, Environmental Protection Agency, Department of Agriculture
Q. Since the inception of Earth Day, how much has air pollution decreased in the U.S.? 10%, 30%, 70% or 90%
I think everyone can agree, we must do all we can to help conserve the resource the earth has provided us so future generations can enjoy what we enjoy today. Even food packaging companies like Genpak must play a role. For our part, we practice conservation in many different forms from our manufacturing process to the various types of products we offer. Without question, the greenest products we offer have to be our Harvest Fiber line. They are fully, third party certified compostable, 100% all natural and come in a variety of shapes and sizes.
So enjoy Earth Day and celebrate all that Mother Nature has provided!
