EARTH DAY: Restore the Earth


Wildflowers & Co. mission is to support local, buy local and grow local. Together, we accomplish this mission by supporting the authentic Indigenous artisans and makers, female entrepreneurs and makers whose practice include using sustainable and ethical practices. 

Wildflowers does not promote sustainable, ethical or low waste because it's 'trending'. We look forward to increasing our low waste alternatives and refill selection. 

The theme for Earth Day 2021 is Restore the Earth. What does Restore mean? To our family, it means repairing our earth to its original state. Together, communities must unite to lead this change by choosing alternatives that are safer to our collective home - Earth. Ok great, what's next? We encourage families to gather and learn together. Earth Day offers educational resources for families to learn about Earth Week activities, including attending virtual summits and celebrations. Earth events are an excellent place to begin your learning journey. To assist your journey, we are highlighting local companies and products:
