One of the great things about being part of a company like the Supple Collection is that we get to meet a lot of amazing people. So many of our partners are doing great things to make the world a better place. It’s really awesome and inspiring to be able to talk with educators, librarians, and business owners about the things they’re doing to make a difference in their community.
Did you know that the world’s human population is expected to grow by two billion people in the next 30 years?1 If this happens, and we continue as we do, we will no longer have the natural resources we need to sustain our everyday lives. A population that large would require about three planet Earths in order for us to have all the resources we need.
Sustainability is no longer just something we should look at, but rather something we must focus on. Our lives literally depend on it.
That’s why it’s so important for us to educate young learners about sustainable practices and get them invested in protecting the environment. By bringing books about nature into our homes and classrooms, we can get young learners excited about nature so that later they go into careers that help support global sustainability.
At the Supple Collection, protecting the environment is always at the heart of what we do. We strive to encourage eco-friendly mentality within the community by supplying libraries with furniture made from environmentally sustainable materials.
Libraries play an important role in educating the community on a wide range of important topics, including matters involving environmental conservation. By equipping libraries with eco-friendly furniture, we hope to prompt conversations about environmental awareness and reduce natural resource consumption in urban environments.
This month, we’ve decided to take a moment to acknowledge some of the great things that libraries are doing to encourage environmental awareness by highlighting some awesome nature-themed books. These inspiring books have been the recipients of esteemed literary awards and have prompted young people across the nation to take action to protect the environment and get outside.
