Amid a global pandemic, people everywhere are shifting focus to the things that matter most, like protecting the planet. With COVID-19 causing people to stay home for most of the past year, pollution is temporarily on the decline. One example is in India, where for the first time in decades, residents have been able to see the Himalayas due to the reduction in air pollution (according to this CNN article). Bottom line? There’s never been a better time to go green and celebrate Earth Day this April 22nd. Let Goldilocks Promos be your one-stop-shop for all things eco-friendly!
