This year Moonrise wants to celebrate the Earth not for just a day, but the entire month of April. And we cannot wait to share a project that we are releasing later this month that will make everyday Earth Day!
For every week this month we are donating 10% from every candle sold to different non-profit organizations that focus on environmentally sustainable efforts.
April 1st–7th: GreenWave
A North American nonprofit focused on the development of regenerative farming techniques for aquaculture. Their polyculture farming system grows a mix of seaweeds and shellfish that require zero inputs—making it the most sustainable form of food production on the planet—while sequestering carbon and rebuilding reef ecosystems.
April 8th–14th: Rodale Institute
A Pennsylvania-based nonprofit dedicated to growing the organic movement through rigorous research, farmer training, and consumer education. Rodale Institute is home to the longest-running side-by-side comparison of organic vs. conventional farming practices, and their research focus areas include developing organic solutions to pests, disease and weeds, mitigating and adapting to climate change, and growing nutrient dense foods.
April 15th–21st: The Bee Conservancy
A NYC-based nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting bees, safeguarding the environment, and securing food justice through education, research, habitat creation, and advocacy. They strive towards a day when all bee populations thrive in protected habitats, and are supported by an engaged global network.
April 22nd–30th: National Forest Foundation
A North American nonprofit created by Congress in 1992 to be the official non-profit partner of the United States Forest Service. Its mission is to engage Americans in community-based national programs that promote the health and public enjoyment of the 193 million acre National Forest System.
