Happy Earth Day!

Earth.-Day-and-night This Earth Day, more than ever, it is important to take a moment to think about the past, present and future of Earth.  Recently, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released a report stating that the environment is in worse condition than previously thought and that we must act quickly to reverse the harmful effects from over consumption and use of dirty energy. According to the UK’s energy and climate secretary, Ed Davey, “the [report shows] the tools we need to tackle climate change are available, but international efforts need to significantly increase.” WWF’s Samantha Smith says: “The IPCC report makes clear that acting on emissions now is affordable, but delaying further increases the costs. It is a super strong signal to [fossil fuel] investors: they can no longer say they did not know the risks.” It is important to remember that each environmentally conscious act makes a difference, no matter how small.  An ongoing conversation that builds and builds can be the catalyst that turns everything around.  We can no longer ignore that a drastic change must occur. Today, Oasis Bags would like to wish you a Happy Earth Day and encourage you to speak with those around you about ways each of us can relieve our carbon footprint and what you wish larger corporations would do to turn things around.     We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children. – Native American Proverb
