Earth Day & Flowers: A Bit of History

Boyd’s Flowers would like to remind you that Earth Day takes place on April 22, 2020. This special day gives us all a chance to appreciate and learn more about our wonderful planet. It’s a time for action and forgiving.

We can volunteer for a clean-up project, learn more about environmental issues that affect us all or adopt more recycling practices. And we can express appreciation for family, friends, and coworkers who are committed to a greener world.

Earth Day began in 1970 as a kind of global “teach-in” for environmental activities. In the U.S. and around the world, people rallied to promote a greener world and take part in local pollution clean-up activities.

In 1990, Earth Day 20 was celebrated with a focus on recycling and sustainable living. In the 21st century, the day has become an annual celebration of the Earth’s goodness and a reminder of the need to promote cleaner energy, global climate responsibility, and protection of endangered species.

If the people close to you are involved in environmental issues, let them know you understand and cherish their concerns. There’s no better way to make that point than with a gift grown from the Earth, like these:

Living plants and flowers — Nothing says you appreciate and understand green living like the gift of a live plant or a flower in full bloom. Show you care by sending a vibrant, lush plant in a tasteful matching basket, with a note of appreciation.

Colorful flowers for a brighter worldWhat expresses the beauty of the earth like a gift of bright colorful flowers. If you’re giving to someone who’s committed to living locally while thinking globally, you can send flowers that grow wild near homes, such as daisies or violets.

Fruits from the Earth’s garden — a fresh fruit basket offers also makes a great addition to an Earth Day-inspired “teach-in”, local street or stream cleaning get-together, or an office or home party.
