World Environment Day 2017


Hey flavor lovers! Did you know that June 5th is World Environment Day and Canada is this year’s official host country? One of our favorite parts about this 42-year-old holiday is that each year represents a different theme – this year being “Connect People to Nature” – and we couldn’t love it more!

At SUNSET® our commitment to the environment is as important as living up to our Inspired by Flavor® brand promise. With efforts such as The Green Grass Project and our Eco Flavor Bowls, we’re constantly working to improve our relationship with the environment. Fun fact: we use ladybugs as our primary form of natural pest control because they’re great at eating the bad bugs!

Apart from keeping ladybugs around, here’s how you can connect with nature in celebration of World Environment Day:   

  • Go for a walk at a local park… or go for an adventure at a national park!
  • Snap an awe-inspiring photo of nature and share it with #WorldEnvironmentDay or #WithNature
  • Participate in a World Environment Day event happening near you
  • Upload your nature photos to the iNaturalist app and help contribute to environmental science

Look beyond the natural beauty and commit to a long-term lifestyle change, big or small. These following actions can make a positive and lasting impact on the environment:

  • Cancel all print subscriptions and subscribe to digital versions instead
  • Replace disposable products with reusable ones (e.g. use cloth towels instead of paper towels)
  • Use a reusable shopping bag when you go to the grocery store
  • Unplug appliances when they are not being used
  • Wear clothes that require less dry-cleaning
