20 Apr Top Watch Brands Support the Environment on Earth Day and Every Day
This Saturday, April 22, marks Earth Day, a time to celebrate Earth and her many bounties. Many celebrate with clean-up efforts, planting trees and committing to environmental protection efforts. The annual event was begun in 1970 and nearly 200 countries around the world participate — all managed globally by the Earth Day Network.
Today, many top watch brands also make a commitment to saving Earth’s resources. Some have programs and foundations to reforest regions of the world, others support clean-water efforts, and a host of brands support protection of our oceans. We will bring you more about the brands that dedicated their resources to ocean preservation on World Oceans Day in June.
Certain privately owned watch brands have environmental foundations that look after the causes, even offering awards and grants to those studying and pursuing investigation into conservation efforts. Rolex is a leader in this field. Through the Rolex Awards for Enterprise, the company regularly supports those who work toward sustainability. The brand supports Dr. Skywriter, Makota Murase, who is campaigning for rainwater conservation around the world. Through its Young Laureates, it is also helping to protect the world’s threatened birds, as well as a host of other projects.
We invite you in any time to see our strong selection of Rolex watches and to talk about protecting the Earth and its resources.
