April shower might bring May flowers, but that’s not all. It is officially Earth Month! We may be biased here at Cupanion, however we think that this may be the best month of the entire year (along with something to look forward to after World Water Day last month).
This year will be the 48th anniversary with official Earth Day following on April 22nd. Over the years, numerous brands across various industry sectors have been finding unique ways to show their pride for our planet.
Shopping + giving back to the planet sounds like a pretty great win-win to us. The world of consumerism is changing slowly but surely, and there are a lot of amazing brands out that that are upping their game to help change how we shop. Whether it be through sourcing sustainable materials or donating profits to charity, these are just a few of the brands we tip our hats to for making changes.

Spreading environmental awareness and conservation for our planet is what Earth Month is all about. We are a world of shoppers, but do we ever really think about what damage our shopping habits are having on the planet? We’ve become accustomed to fast fashion that is cheap and accessible. But it usually comes at a great cost to others – a subject we simply cannot ignore any longer.
