April 04, 2022
Every year on April 7th, we celebrate World Health Day. This date marks the anniversary of the founding of the World Health Organization in 1948.
A theme is selected each year that highlights a priority area of public health concern all over the globe. The theme for 2022 is Our Planet, Our Health.
In the midst of a pandemic and a polluted planet, the WHO is focusing our attention on urgent actions needed to keep humans and the planet healthy as well as to foster a movement to create societies focused on well-being. It’s important to realize that the climate crisis we are currently in is also a health crisis.
As a BCorp certified company, we will be participating in Earth Month along with all other BCorp businesses around the world.
B Lab U.S and Canada is committed to creating a better economy and raising the standards of business so that companies are accountable for their impact on people and the environment.
All April, we will be dedicated to educating ourselves on climate justice and preparing actions we can take going forward.
Climate justice recognizes that those who are least responsible for climate change are more likely to suffer its most devastating effects, now and in the future. Climate justice also places the needs, voices and leadership of those who are most impacted by climate change at the forefront.
As a business, we understand that businesses have a significant role to play in the causes of climate change. SO, we must be part of the solutions.
Join us this month as we dive deeper into all of these topics, learn, reflect and begin to take action.
Let’s celebrate World Health day this Thursday by doing something good for our planet. #HealthierTomorrow
