Every year on the 22nd of April we all celebrate Earth Day; Earth Day marks the anniversary of the birth of the modern environmental movement in 1970. Earth Day events range from river clean-ups to removals of invasive plants, informing about the importance of greenery, keeping our earth Neat and clean and many more, not only this but many communities come together and clean up litter, plant trees, or simply reflect on the beauty of nature. With social distancing still in place for many of us this year, Earth Day has gone digital. Many Brands came forward and took their initiative towards celebrating World Earth Day.
Here are a few of the campaigns by Brands,

Wipro, while unveiling its pledge on Earth Day, also set an intermediate target of a 55 percent reduction in GHG emissions by 2030 in absolute emission levels compared to its base year of 2016-17 (April-March).
These targets are based on the globally accepted Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) and reflect the deep decarbonization and operational changes Wipro will drive within its value chain to achieve Net-Zero within 2040.
Wipro will also defer offsets until the target year, underscoring its values-driven strategy and approach. The primary levers of decarbonization drive are:
(i) Improving the energy efficiency of facilities for a sustained reduction in energy consumption.
(ii) Increasing use of renewable energy in owned facilities in India through private power purchase agreements and captive solar power.
(iii) Combining behavioral, technological, and collaborative approaches that help reduce the carbon footprint of air travel, commuting, and purchased goods and services.
Bombay Shaving Company:
Humans produce a lot of waste from simple day-to-day activities and our shaving routines are no exception. The problem of disposable razors has been prevalent for quite some time. These razors have significant environmental impacts and potentially detrimental effects on human health, aquatic animals, and the wider ecosystem. Therefore, this Earth Day, Bombay Shaving Company, a conscious, progressive, sustainable focused, and premium personal care brand for men & women, encourages shaving responsibly by switching to metal safety razors.
Through a short factual video, Bombay Shaving Company sheds light on how disposable razors are a menace to our planet as their irreplaceable blades and plastic body contribute to 80% of all marine waste and almost 200 million disposable razors are thrown away. Every time a ton of disposable razors is manufactured, 2.5 tons of carbon dioxide is released every single day. Hence, there is an immediate need to reconsider the sustainable nature of our grooming routines. Giving a solution to this planet’s devastating problem, the video opens the door to the idea of how Bombay Shaving Company’s Precision Safety Metal Razor is a much more sustainable and environment-friendly way of shaving. Unlike disposable razors, safety razors are built to last a lifetime. These safety razors are recycle-ready, reduces plastic waste, and gives a much better shaving experience, without hurting the environment.
