Get Your Gear On For Earth Day 2017

(3BL Media/Justmeans) - All over the world people prepared for Earth Day celebrations, with actions to raise awareness of the need to preserve the planet against further degradation. Some companies also launched earth-friendly products to mark the day and also to donate to relevant charities.

Following up on its green collection called X Thread, Timberland has introduced new pieces made with recycled, organic and renewable materials, including backpacks, T-shirts and shoes from environmentally sound sources. One of the highlights is the floral-patterned Fabric Boot, a variation on the classic design. It features a protective coating over a 100% recycled PET ReCanvas fabric upper. The nylon laces are 100% recycled nylon laces and part of the lug outsole is also recycled.

Elsewhere, Teespring has created a range of tees to support National Parks across the U.S, which will get 50 percent of sales revenue. The company is also offering a range of three retro design tees (pictured) by LA-based Diane Baldwin with 50 percent of proceeds also going to parks.

Finally, to mark the date, a new range called Evolution Trash Bags is announcing the first retail line of EPA-Compliant and UL ECOLOGO Trash Bags in North America. The range comes in a 13-gallon and 42-gallon capacity.

The bags are made with 70 percent Post-Consumer Recycled (PCR) material, and are completed with agricultural irrigation tubing recycled after the crop-growing season. The plastic then is transformed into SCS-Certified post-consumer resin known as PCR-Pro, and then converted into trash bags.

For every sale, Evolution Trash Bags donates 1 percent of the revenue to an environmental nonprofit. For Earth Day, Evolution is offering a 25 percent off coupon code (EVOEARTH), which can be redeemed at checkout from April 20 to April 23 on Amazon.
