Celebrating Earth Day

Image result for earth day 2019

As we celebrate this lovely Earth Day, in addition to reading about and advocating against climate change (today and daily), let’s also acknowledge businesses that are doing just that, among many other good deeds.

Businesses, both large and small, are all around us and online, and it’s good to know that so many actively care about more than their bottom line.

Learn out about certified B Corporations here, and then go read and share some poetry. It’s still National Poetry Month, too!
