Since 1970, Earth Day is celebrated on April 22 by 192 countries. It is the largest environmental event in the world and the worldwide activities demonstrate support for our fragile environment.

In Canada, where Simply Splendid Victorian Afternoon Teas is based, more than six million Canadians— that’s nearly every school-aged child—participate in an Earth Day  activity in their communities.

So here’s a toast to Earth Day. edc-logoLet’s boil water, toss some choice loose leaf tea (Fairtrade and sourced through the Ethical Tea Partnership) into the teapot. Steep for optimal flavour. Pour a cup. Savour. And sip to the good health of our environment. Recycle your tea leaves in the garden.

The Earth needs our help all year long.
