For the month of April, to help celebrate Earth Day on April 22nd, Plativites shared a few tips on how they are helping the planet by being more sustainable. We shared a few of the resources below to help encourage you to do the same!
- Eat less meat
- Cut down on plastic, foil, and paper use
- Check out this article for a few tips on cutting down your plastic footprint. It can be as simple as using reusable grocery and produce bags, switching from Ziploc bags to food containers and food wraps, and using reusable and/or bamboo paper towels.
- Reduce your greenhouse gas emissions
- This article shows the breakdown of global greenhouse gas emissions in 2016. Keep energy consumption in mind next time you decide between driving and riding your bike or leaving the lights on in your house. Also, you can choose to support companies that have reduced emissions.

Plative also hosted a company-wide DIY gardening activity for our team to grow our own herbs! We sent out starter kits to all participants with seed packets, biodegradable planting pots, potting soil discs, and plant markers. We got together on Earth Day to plant the parsley, thyme, basil, and cilantro seeds as a team.
It was great to spend half an hour of our day celebrating Earth Day with our colleagues and growing herbs we can use in our daily lives. Now, let’s see who’s herbs thrive!
