It’s Earth Day!
Today marks the anniversary of the first modern environmental movement, making this year the 52nd year of campaigning. Since then, many of us have started taking extra measures to be environmentally friendly in our spending. However, in today’s hyper-capitalistic world, with plastic things wrapped in plastic things, it’s seemingly impossible for an individual to overturn the mess we humans have created. Most are now numb to the damage we cause to our own homes.
Sources say, “by 2050 there will be 10-20% less days of quality snow across the globe.” That means, well for one, that the Earth is in SOS mode but two, that our sport will only become more expensive, less accessible, and ultimately wipe out our opportunities to play on the outdoor rinks and ponds during the winter.
That’s why for STÄRK, the little things matter. Although our primary goal as a company is to provide affordable, quality gear for those unaccounted for in the equipment industry, that hasn’t stopped us from being responsible hockey manufacturers and doing our part in creating a sustainable environment.
Here are a few things that we do here at STÄRK for our friend, Earth (who desperately needs saving. She’s going through a quarter-century crisis right now).
There is always more that we can do! We don’t intend to stop! So, we would love to hear your ideas on how we, as a hockey manufacturer, can contribute to being a more environmentally conscious company. Let us know in the comments below! We owe it to you and us to make the world a better place. Happy Earth Day!
