This year marked the 40th anniversary of Earth Day, which was founded on the premise that all people, regardless of race, gender, income, or geography, have a moral right to a healthy, sustainable environment. The mission of Earth Day was to broaden and diversify environmental movements worldwide, and to mobilize them as the most effective vehicle for promoting a healthy, sustainable environment. Organizations participating in Earth Day pursue their mission through a combination of education, public policy, and activism campaigns. The Earth Day Network has a global reach with more than 20,000 partners and organizations in 190 countries. More than 1 billion people participate in Earth Day activities, making it the largest secular civic event in the world.
Ecocyn, which partners with Earth Day organizations and sponsors events that support these efforts, has launched efforts to increase its participation even further, “ our goal is to not only talk the talk but walk the walk”, said Zak Stroud, Chief Operating Officer.“ One of our top priorities is to build a profitable company that matters to its customers, vendors and team members,” he said. The ecocyn Green program recognizes hotels, restaurants and attractions for taking steps to preserve the environment including water and energy conservation, waste reduction, optional linen service and more.
“For years, the Rainforest has been an inspiration for conserving the world’s natural beauty and sharing that beauty with our customers is key to this campaign,” said Jeff Beck, President and CEO of Ecocyn.
