On April 22 we celebrate Earth Day. It is a good reminder to be kind to our planet, to cherish it and to do our part to minimize our impact on it, not only today but every day. It is our duty to take care of our planet and to protect its resources.

At Paperblanks, we have always been dedicated to leaving as small an environmental footprint as possible, and this also means donating to organizations that share this goal. More importantly, our paper is uncoated, unbleached and FSC-certified, and sourced from 100% sustainable forests.

We invite you to join us in making both big and small changes in our daily lives that can have a positive impact on the planet. Whether it’s reducing our personal consumption, avoiding single-use plastic, generating less waste or eating sustainably, together we can work at becoming more environmentally aware.

And what better way to feel inspired than with the words of great writers, thinkers and change makers who have celebrated Mother Nature with their work. Here are seven of our favourite quotes for Earth Day.
