(New!) Visconti Eco-Logic BP/RB Collection!
"The first Earth Day in 1970 mobilized millions of Americans for the protection of the planet. On April 22, 1970, 20 million Americans: 10% of the U.S. population at the time, took to the streets to protest environmental ignorance and demand a new way forward for our planet. The first Earth Day is credited with launching the modern environmental movement and is now recognized as the planet's largest civic event. Earth Day led to a passage of landmark environmental laws in the United States, including the Clean Air, Clean Water and Endangered Species Acts. Many countries soon adopted similar laws, and in 2016, the United Nations chose Earth Day as the day to sign the Paris Climate Agreement into force. Earth Day is much more than a day, it is a historic moment when citizens of the world rise up in a united call for the creativity, innovation, ambition, and bravery that we need to meet our climate crisis and seize the enormous opportunities of a zero-carbon future."
Made from bio-plastic obtained from hemp plants, a non -polluting material that is equally very durable. Plastic hemp materials are obtained from the stem of the plant which provides a high quantity of cellulose. The cellulose is then processed into a strong and flexible plastic creating a bio-plastic. What makes hemp the perfect plant for producing bio-plastics are its high quantity of cellulose and its low environmental impact cultivation characteristics.
