International Mother Earth Day
22 de April de 2022
This Friday, April 22, we celebrate International Mother Earth Day, an official event proclaimed by the United Nations in 2009. Its promoter, US Senator Gaylord Nelson, established this day to create a common awareness of environmental problems.
Many countries celebrate this day in the hope of striking a fair balance between the economic, social, and environmental needs of present and future generations, as well as promoting harmony with nature and the Earth.
This day aims to make humanity aware of the problems generated by overpopulation, pollution, biodiversity conservation and other environmental concerns to protect the Earth.
Defeder, as a manufacturer of 100% organic fertilizers, celebrates and commemorates International Mother Earth Day, emphasizing the importance of conserving biodiversity.
The planet demands our action to stop pollution of the oceans, extreme heat, forest fires, floods and other climatic events that have intensified in recent years due to climate change, one of the great threats we face today in day.
For this reason, Spain has achieved that 10% of the agricultural area is organic, becoming the first European country with the largest organic area and the third in the world. In addition, it aims to allocate 25% of agricultural land to organic farming in 2030.
Mother Earth is a common expression used to refer to planet Earth in various countries. This demonstrates the interdependence between us and the planet on which we live, therefore, the care and maintenance of the flows of matter and energy, the conservation of other species, of ecosystems, and of ourselves is the co-responsibility of everyone.
For all this, at Defeder, we want to remember today more than ever that it is important to change towards a more sustainable economy and our company has been committed to it from day one.
Happy International Mother Earth Day!
