As you may have heard, this Friday the 20th of September there will be a Global Climate Strike. People all around Australia (and the world) will be walking out of workplaces and schools in order to send a clear message to those in power that more must be done to address the climate crisis.
The worldwide movement was initiated by Swedish teen Greta Thunberg, who vowed to leave school every Friday to sit outside her local government office, demanding action. At first, Greta sat alone. Now, only a few months later, this solitary schoolgirl has successfully started a worldwide movement.
We are a Gold Coast-based business, and for the past few weeks, those of us living here have witnessed first-hand proof of the climate crisis, with over 50 bushfires burning in the hinterland and surrounds. People and wildlife alike were dramatically impacted, with many homes being destroyed, along with thousands of hectares of precious bushland. There really is no better time to stand up for the planet.
The team here at Life Apparel take caring for our environment very seriously.
To help do our part, in the last year, we have made the transition to fully biodegradable plastic-free shipping materials. As an online store, this means that we are literally saving tonnes of plastic waste from ending up in landfill.
We also stock a range of eco-friendly products, made from either recycled or biodegradable materials, such as our bamboo eco cups and our recycled outdoor mats made from 100% recycled plastic. And we sure will be taking a couple of hours out tomorrow to stand with the youth and with the planet for a better future for us all. We hope to see you there!
