Political participation is hard. In a democratic society, it is also a right that must be preserved. Ten years ago, Nike let Ceres know that when it came to climate action, they wanted their voices to be heard on Capitol Hill. At the time, their voice as an energy purchaser and a consumer brand was not deemed central to the climate debate. Unlike in the case of traditional energy providers, it was thought companies like Nike, Levi Strauss & Co., Starbucks, Sun Microsystems and Timberland did not have "skin" in the game.
Nearly 50 years ago, US Senator Gaylord Nelson spearheaded the first Earth Day, sparked by the devastating 1969 oil spill off the Southern California coast. The inaugural celebration in 1970 saw 20 million Americans showing their support, followed by the passing of the Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, and the Endangered Species Acts by year’s end.
Today, Earth Day is the largest civic observance in the world, with more than one billion people celebrating annually.
