Thank you all for a successful Product Hunt launch last week for our one stop shop for product recommendations! We were the 11th product of the day, and for the first product we've ever launched, it went really well! Huge shoutout to all of you for helping support us and welcome to everyone that recently subscribed :). We hope to continue to deliver quality content so please leave us some feedback or product recommendations to add!

With our recent launch, we dropped the ball on a proper Earth Day post. But we don't feel too bad about it; technically we should live every day like it’s Earth Day.

It’s hard to imagine a time when people didn’t think about our planet. Serving as a catalyst for the modern environmental movement, Earth Day represents the first time the American government recognized the grassroots movement as more than just a discussion point. It transformed the public attitude and sparked the creation of critical environmental acts including the Clean Water Act and the Endangered Species Act — it even established the creation of the Environmental Protection Agency.

Today, Earth Day itself marks an important time to reflect on the past year, and how the community came together to further our sustainability and ethical efforts. In this special edition, we’ll tackle how Earth Day originated, damage done in the past decade, and how our government, businesses, and local work addressed the world’s environmental issues.
