Earth Day 2015
April 21st, 2015

The Plant Café OrganicTM is proud to support Earth Day 2015. As an integral part of our mission we support sustainability, green business practices, GMO labeling, non-GMO farming and sourcing as well as a steadfast belief in reducing our carbon footprint. We encourage our customers to take this day and every day to think of the precious resources and the health of our environment as a direct correlation to the health of our bodies, families and communities at large.

 

California’s drought reminds us of the need for conservation and responsible stewardship of this precious resource. We have been at the forefront of self-imposed water reductions since 2014. We join the Californians against fracking organization as we continue to strive to safe guard our planet for generations to come.

 

The first Earth Day on April 22, 1970, activated 20 million Americans from all walks of life and is widely credited with launching the modern environmental movement. The passage of the landmark Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, Endangered Species Act and many other groundbreaking environmental laws soon followed. Growing out of the first Earth Day, Earth Day Network (EDN) works with over 50,000 partners in 192 countries to broaden, diversify and mobilize the environmental movement

On March 17, the State Water Resources Control Board (State Water Board or Board) adopted an expanded emergency conservation regulation to safeguard the state’s remaining water supplies as California enters a fourth consecutive dry year.
