Earth Day 2020: 7 Environmental Companies that Take Eco-Friendliness Seriously

Earth Day 2020 is coming up on Wednesday, April 22! 

I don't know about all of you, but the combination of spring and sheltering in place has me spending an inordinate amount of time outside lately. Long walks around the neighborhood, picnics with my family, chalk and popsicles in the driveway with my son—I'm finding a new appreciation for the natural world.

And in the midst of all the bad news these days, many have found solace in the good news coming from the natural world as well—air pollution decreasing, clearer waters in the Venice Canals, the Himalayas visible again in India. Across the globe, there seems to be a renewed interest in our planet and a renewed passion to take care of it. 

But some environmental companies have been leading us that way all along—and DoneGood is proud to partner with hundreds of them! In honor of Earth Day, we want to highlight seven brands in particular who are setting the example and caring for the earth—while offering us amazing products that help the cause.
