Embrace Earth Month 2024: A Global Call to Environmental Action

It's April, when we step into Earth Month with reverence and determination, acknowledging the profound importance of our planet's well-being. Beyond the hallmark celebration of Earth Day on 22 April, this entire month serves as a poignant reminder of our interconnectedness with Earth and the urgent need to safeguard its health for future generations.

For Selkia, Earth Day holds profound significance beyond just a date on the calendar.

As a skincare brand deeply rooted in our love for the ocean and commitment to environmental sustainability, Earth Day embodies our core values and mission.

Through our products, initiatives, and partnerships, we strive to inspire others to join us in our journey to save the planet, one skincare routine at a time. Earth Day is a powerful reminder of the importance of our work and the collective responsibility we all share in preserving the beauty and vitality of our oceans and planet.

The Historical Significance of Earth Day: 

Earth Day's inception in the United States on 22 April 1970 marked a pivotal moment in environmental history. Senator Gaylord Nelson's impassioned response to the 1969 Santa Barbara oil spill galvanized millions into action, sparking the birth of a global environmental movement. Since then, Earth Day has transcended borders, cultures, and generations, uniting individuals worldwide in the shared mission of environmental stewardship and sustainability.

"My dear friends, the Earth is no more; our home has been pillaged, and we must reverse the damage. Let us act swiftly and resolutely to heal our wounded planet." - Sir David Attenborough.

Earth Day Around the Globe: 

From the bustling streets of New York City to the remote villages of Africa, Earth Day resonates with people from all walks of life, each facing unique environmental challenges. Earth Day holds particular significance in Australia, a land rich in natural wonders. With its vast landscapes, diverse ecosystems, and fragile marine life, Australia is a beacon of natural beauty and a frontline battleground in the fight against climate change and biodiversity loss.
