It’s Earth Day this year on April 22nd and GOS is planning to celebrate this environmentally-friendly day by teaming up with Hewlett Packard. When a customer buys HP ink or toner from us, then we will aid the environment by planting a tree.
Earth Day is a worldwide celebration hosted by the Earth Day Network, the world’s largest environmental movement. The intention of Earth Day is to help find a solution for climate change, to curtail plastic pollution, to further the protection of endangered species, to educate people about the importance of the environment and to broaden the impact of the environmental movement.
The first Earth Day was celebrated in 1970. Earth Day was created in response to the events of January 28, 1969 when an oil well, drilled off the coast of Santa Barbara, ruptured. The resulting oil spill killed over 10,000 seabirds and sea creatures. On April 22nd, 2019 nearly two hundred countries all over the globe will be taking part in events designed to promote environmental awareness.
At GOS we stock a wide range of products from Hewlett Packard, including copier, fax and multifunction machines, desks, ink, toner, office and photo paper. All these items can be seen in our online catalog. In celebration of Earth Day, for every ten Hewlett Packard ink or toner cartridges that are purchased from us during the month of April, we will pay to have a tree planted.
There are lots of small changes you can make to your lifestyle in order to help the environment. For example, for short journeys, you can walk, bike or use public transportation instead of taking the car. You can also elect to only use paper bags or recyclable bags for your groceries, use recyclable beverage containers, only buy food as you need it so you end up throwing less away, and only make purchases from companies who – like GOS – take their environmental responsibilities seriously.
We’re doing our small part to celebrate Earth Day and you can make the right, environmentally-friendly, promotional choices when you partner with the services offered by our team here at GOS.
