In our current state of affairs, it may be easy to cripple in fear. This pandemic is not only testing our national sense of community, but also our patience, security, and self control. We can’t grocery shop without remaining 6ft away and we can’t go see close family and friends. But one thing we can do to pull ourselves out of this state of fear is be of service. We can come together in this time of physical distancing to care for each other and for the planet. Some would say it’s tough, but we challenge that notion. Go do something that makes the world a better place, do something esteemable for your friends, family, a neighbor or stranger. And just as considerable, for yourself. Write a daily gratitude note on your fridge or practice mindful meditation. Even some of the smallest acts, like asking your neighbor if they need something from the store, can go a long way and help us bring back our sense of community.

As Earth Day approaches we are reminded how important it is to sustain our planet for ourselves and for the future. The theme for Earth Day this year is climate action. But what does this mean for all of us? It means taking part in life-support systems that make our world habitable starting with our mountains and oceans. We’ve seen devastating fires here in California and earlier this year in Australia, and it is imperative we bring our beautiful planet back to abundance. To do our part, we’ve partnered with Ecodrive LLC to help offset the carbon emissions emitted from each shipment by planting trees. These trees are some of the highest carbon-absorbing trees and will help alleviate poverty in the regions they are planted. While there are several different things we can all do to contribute to climate change, from being environmentally conscious and using non-plastic items, to wearing sunscreen that is safe for our reefs and oceans, at American Hat Makers your purchase drives purpose and together we are planting trees.

 

This time is important for everyone because we are in this together. We need to be cooperative and consistent in making sure we’re maintaining physical distancing, staying home, and doing what we can for those in our communities who are more at-risk. Earth Day not only represents the fight against climate change, but it represents a day for us to come together in the power of digital media to connect with one another about the planet. Global carbon emissions have decreased by 30% since the stay at home orders have gone into effect, but to keep these numbers low we’ll need a new way forward. 

What are we up to in the meantime?

 

  • Taking walks every day (wearing our  UV-Ray protected hat of course)
  • Wearing our facemasks
  • Being of service and checking in on our neighbors (elderely first and foremost)
  • Touching base with friends/family via Facetime, Zoom
  • Spending more time in our gardens
  • Cooking meals as a family
  • Being grateful for the time to be together
