Earth Day, Friday, April 22nd, 2022
Mother Earth takes care of us. She provides us with the resources we need to thrive. It’s only right that we give back to Mother Earth and take care of our planet. Earth Day is a global holiday, celebrated by over a billion people from over 190 countries. At The Bouqs Co., we’re dedicated to innovating the flower industry with more sustainable, healthy practices.
Earth Day Flowers
Plant some flowers in your garden and send flowers to a loved one. With our farm-fresh blooms, your friends, family, and co-workers can enjoy the vibrant blossoms while you can feel good knowing you are supporting sustainable farming practices. Since we cut your flowers and ship them after you place your order, you’ll receive fresh and long-lasting flowers.
Earth Day Plants
Looking for something more evergreen? Consider giving one of our plants for Earth Day to family, friends, or co-workers. A new potted friend makes the perfect gift to honor the environment. We also offer drought-tolerant succulents in giftable pots that can be transferred into a garden.
Ideas for Celebrating Earth Day

WHY DO WE CELEBRATE EARTH DAY ON 22 APRIL?
Earth Day was a response to the oil spills, smoggy skies, and polluted waters that were becoming an issue during this time. A seed was planted that we needed to do more to raise awareness about the environment. April 22nd was chosen because it was in between college’s spring breaks and final exams.
Who Started Earth Day?
Senator Gaylord Nelson, the junior senator from Wisconsin, was inspired by the student anti-war movement and wanted to infuse that energy into public consciousness about water and air pollution. He persuaded Pete McCloskey, a conservation-minded Republican Congressman, to serve as his co-chair, and they recruited young activist Denis Hayes to organize campus teach-ins on April 22.
What Is the Largest Secular Observance in the World?
With more than a billion people participating in activities each year, Earth Day is the largest secular observance in the world. Now, with digital and social media, more people than ever are ready to join together to fight climate change.
