Earth Day has fallen on April 22nd every year since 1970. It is a day to honour our planet and every natural being that calls Earth home. Earth Day helps us remember all that has been done to protect our planet and reminds us that there is so much change yet to happen if we want to continue to inhabit Earth.
Every person, company and organization can do their part to contribute to a sustainable way of life.
Here at Tense, we use reclaimed and recycled wood to build our watches. The wood we use would otherwise be wasted and potentially sent to a landfill to rot. We make good use of wood byproducts to offer our unique time pieces.

Earth Day 1970 started the modern environmental movement at time when issues threatening the environment were not a part of common discourse. Unregulated factories, gas guzzling vehicles, pesticides and many more factors were contributing to the degradation of the environment in the name of production and progress.
Today, Earth Day is a reminder that we still have a long way to go before we can call our home stable and our way of life sustainable.
