Want the opportunity to give back to the environment this Earth day? Meet Urban Green Makers.
Takuma Nitta was one of the thousands of people who was affected by the 2011 Japan 9.1 magnitude earthquake and 132.5 ft. tsunami waves. He saw first hand the type of devastation a natural disaster brings to communities, families and the environment.
Yet in spite of all the destruction, a seed of hope was planted into Takuma and he walked away inspired to restore the beauty of his hometown. Four years later, Urban Green Makers was born with one purpose.
“Our big mission is the environment and the main mission of the brand is to change one life,” says Urban Green Makers brand manager Tristan Schmitt. “
Urban Green Makers offers a range of different terrariums that brings the beauty of the outdoors to your home or office, and to communities that have been damaged by natural disasters. Every person that shops at Urban Green Makers give back to the environment, and proceeds from all purchases go towards the planting of trees in Africa, Japan, Bangladesh and the Philippines.
Each terrarium is a DIY kit and allows each buyer to experience the process of creating and planting new life.
The beauty of this company is that not one but two recipients benefit from a transaction. Children in the communities that Urban Green Makers serves learn the importance of giving back to the environment, and the process of restoring beauty and life in damaged and lifeless situations.
Besides emphasizing the importance of giving back to the environment and helping natural disaster affected communities, Urban Green Makers also inspires the act of generosity and service. Tristan says that with a little bit of initiative and finding people who have the same desire to benefit the earth and others in need, people can make a difference in their community.
“Get out there, connect with like-minded people and take a step forward. Whether it’s picking up trash or cleaning the beach, finding those people with the same goal is important.”
Apollo Box is thankful and thrilled to work with a company whose mission is to give back to the environment and change the lives of others. Tristan says that Urban Green Maker is also thrilled to work with Apollo Box, “We’re happy to have a friend in the U.S. and it was a stroke of luck to work with Apollo Box. They have some pretty cool stuff in there.” If you’re searching for a way to give back to the environment this Earth Day, consider buying a terrarium kit from Urban Green Maker.
