Can Humans Coexist With Planet Earth Without Destroying it?
Earth Day, also called International Mother Earth Day, began in the US in 1970 as a day to celebrate
the planet and encourage people to become more environmentally friendly. It is now an annual event that is widely regarded as the beginning of the modern environmental movement. It recognizes that “the Earth and its ecosystems are our home” and that “it is necessary to promote harmony with nature and the Earth.”
A wide range of events and campaigns are held and started on Earth Day. Please go to the Earth Day Network website to find out about how you can get involved in Earth Day or subsequent campaigns.
The term Mother Earth is used because it “reflects the interdependence that exists among human beings, other living species and the planet we all inhabit”. The day is annually commemorated around the world on April 22 as International Mother Earth Day.
Earth Day 2017’s Campaign is Environmental & Climate Literacy
The 2017 campaign theme for Earth Day is “Environmental & Climate Literacy”. Education is our foundation for progress. We need to build a global citizenry, which is fluent in the concepts of climate change, and aware of its unprecedented threat to our planet. We need to empower everyone with knowledge to act in defense of environmental protection.
At BiOWiSH® our biotechnology products are comprised of microorganisms that work together to break down organic matter so they can easily be consumed in their natural cycles. As a company, we are heavily invested in research and development to further develop our all-natural product lines.
Developing sustainable farming practices that enrich the soil and increase crop yields is the goal of BiOWiSH Technologies agricultural products.
Microorganisms have been changing the climate, and have been changed by the climate, throughout Earth’s history. Microorganisms respond, and evolve in their surroundings at higher rates than most other organisms. We believe that by developing microbial technology, we can contribute to re-building and improving living conditions around the world. Our biotechnology products are showing significant positive results in many industries – industries such as agronomy and perishable foods, waste water treatment and surface water treatment.
