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. Audemars Piguet is top in this field. Through the Audemars Piguet Foundation, the brand continually helps support the environment around the wold. Among its causes: protecting biodiversity in Madagascar, helping to implement and train family farming in Brazil, planting trees via One Drop's "El Salvador" Project, reconstituting forests globally, and more. We invite you in to see our collection of Audemars Piguet watches, a brand proud to help the environment.
