Though The House of Marley’s week-long celebration of Earth Day ended with us giving away some headphones in our #EarthDayGiveaway, it’s our belief that the Earth should be enjoyed and respected year-round. This is why we use FSC certified wood and recycled aluminum in our products. It’s not enough to just care about Mother Nature one week a year.
So, pop quiz time: what does FSC certified wood even mean? Used in House of Marley products like the Exodus and Stir It Up on-ear headphones among others, FSC stands for the Forest Stewardship Council. This is a non-profit organization that ensures businesses don’t mishandle the world’s forests when using them for resources. Each piece of wood that is stamped by the FSC has met the high standards of this conservation group that guarantees the wood was sourced in a way that was “environmentally responsible, socially beneficial and economically viable.” The group became an official organization in 1993 and has been helping to create forest regrowth one tree at a time ever since.
So, what does all this mean to you? Well, if you’re anything like us, you like to breathe in clean air every time you wake up. Whether hitting the water for surfing, running down the pavement for your daily jog, or just relaxing with a barbecue in your backyard, the Earth’s ecosystem would crumble without trees. Be mindful of the Earth-friendly products already in your life, and whenever possible, add some more.
In celebration of this year’s Earth Day, The House of Marley teamed up with daytime talk show host Ellen Degeneres to give away pairs of Exodus Headphones to everyone in her audience. Check out the clip below. Ellen sums us up best when she says, “Now you can listen to your music and save the Mother Earth at the same time.” A worthy concept if there ever was one.
