Eco-Friendly Choices on Earth Day & Every Day!

April 12, 2022

Each year, Earth Day is celebrated on April 22nd in the United States and worldwide. This year’s Earth Day theme is Invest in Our Planet. But what does this mean and how can we get involved? Read on to learn more about the celebration of Earth Day, how we at Domanda Design aim to put our attention on eco-friendly business practices, and how you as a consumer can make choices in your everyday life that benefit our environment. 

What is Earth Day and Why Does it Matter?

Earth Day is an American holiday now celebrated world-wide annually on April 22nd. Started in 1970 by Senator Gaylord Nelson, Earth Day has helped draw attention to the importance of caring for our planet. It has helped lead to the creation of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and other environmental laws in the United States. Earth Day is an important day that asks us to consider the impact we have on our planet and encourages everyone to make conscious eco-friendly choices in our day to day lives. 

How On-Demand Manufacturing is Eco-Friendly

At Domanda Design all items in our shop are printed on demand, just for you. This allows us to offer many customizable options with our products while making sustainable choices that help the environment. 

In many traditional manufacturing models overproduction of products does not account for shifts in consumer interests or trends and, as a result, a lot of product ends up in landfills.  By choosing on-demand manufacturing, we are only producing products as they are being sold, eliminating the estimation of consumer demands and the overproduction of goods.

Other Ways You Can Care for Our Planet 

How else can you help the environment on Earth Day and every day? Check out some of our quick tips:

  • Reuse and recycle product packaging material.
    Find new ways to repurpose packing from your household items or shipments! A plastic shopping bag can be repurposed into a trash bag for small bins in your home or paper packaging materials can be used to wrap small gifts.

  • Choose reusable products.
    Opt for reusable options when you can! Choose reusable items like tote bags, tumblers, and bottles just to name a few. Check out Domanda Design’s options for some of these products at the links above. 
  • Shop used items or participate in swaps.
    When you don’t want to buy a new product, try shopping for used items or coordinate item swaps with friends. These options allow you to refresh your home in eco-friendly ways. 
  • Vote with your dollar.
    Support businesses like Domanda Design that put on-demand manufacturing and other eco-friendly business practices as a core part of their business models!
