A Very Special Thanks to all our Non-Profits and Sponsors for being a part of Asheville Earth Day in 2013!
A little note from Ben Colvin, Director of Development:
“There is an emotional bond between us humans and the Natural World, yet we are becoming increasingly numb and disconnected. I have spent a lot of time exploring and hiking in some of our public lands in the Southeast and learned to appreciate that emotional connection. These were rich experiences which I have treasured immensely.
Our forests are sometimes mistakenly measured only for their extractable resource value but these forests have intrinsic values as well. Most people agree that It is important to have places where native wildlife and plants are preserved, even if someone never goes there to actually see them and that National Parks, wildlife preserves, and certain forests should be preserved just because they exist.
The public lands that Wild South is helping to protect provide valuable ecosystem services are vital to humanity’s life- support system, and help provide the necessary conditions for us humans to flourish. I feel it is important now to protect these lands for future generations.
We are all connected! Wild South is helping us make that connection.”
“Boogie Bean Coffee Roasters celebrates Earth Day annually and utilizes green practices throughout our model of business. Our beans are organic, that is, they are grown in a system of renewable resources and conservation of soil and water. In celebration of Earth Day, we have created a blend that uses all organic coffees concentrating on earthy and nutty notes. Personally, it is rewarding to contribute to Earth Day in my hometown, where the culture of environmental awareness, care, and action is fostered, and shaped the stance that I have on living green today,” states Ali Banks, co-owner of Boogie Bean Coffee Roasters.
Be Nice to the Environment- We know there are other options out there, but caustic, chemical based water filtration, drain cleaners and maintenance products leave their mark on everyone. Aqua Pro provides the same effective results through natural processes with natural medias products.
