June welcomes the official start of summer! This summer will be a good time to send a gift or activity to your employees as we experience events and home life quite differently. Outdoor activities, recycled products that are good for the environment and thoughtfully designed products are all great ideas for these holidays:
June 8: World Oceans Day
World Ocean Day is a special global day to celebrate our oceans and to work towards maintaining and improving their health and cleanliness. As the health of our oceans goes, so goes the health of the entire planet. Did you know about 17.6 billion pounds of plastic gets dumped into the ocean each year? That’s equivalent to 57,000 blue whales. We know it is our responsibility to encourage and help others reduce their plastic (especially single-use) usage.
Take this day as an opportunity to remove plastic waste from the office. We have several great products that are made from recycled materials. Coffee cups, water bottles and fabric bags are excellent starts to reducing your personal plastic usage.
June 18: Nursing Assistants Week
This day is set aside each year to recognize longevity of service, special contributions to care practices and accomplishments of the nursing assistants who have made caring their life career. Celebrate this day by showing your appreciation for the skills and caring provided by Nursing Assistants.
-Lunch Poche: s classic gender neutral lunch tote large enough for plenty of snacks and drinks for a long shift.
June 20: Summer Solstice
It’s the first official day of summer--and the longest day of the year! Here in the Seattle area, it won’t get dark until after 10 pm! Celebrate with others by gifting essential summer items. Check out some of our outdoor products.
June 21: Father’s Day
Happy Father’s Day to all of the dads out there!
June 22: World Rainforest Day
We partner with the OneTreeProject which means that every time you place an order with us, we plant a tree! Our trees are being planted in Oregon, specifically the two National Forests in Oregon, the 'Umpqua National Forest' and the 'Malheur National Forest'.
The brands we carry also have their own environmental and social missions like being carbon neutral, protecting lands, and using recycled materials--all of which are better for the planet:
June 26: Take your Dog to Work Day
Even if your office always allows dogs, celebrate this day with all the special pooches in who make the day more enjoyable. Take care of these special pooches with items that will last their lifetime.
