Earth Day 2020 - World In Crisis...


Earth Day 2020 - World In Crisis...

Since the last Earth Day in 2019 a lot has changed in our world. First we had worldwide protests against the never ending pollution of our environment. The protests had not the effect they aimed for - the politicians and the economic power players made big promises, but everything just continued as before.

Now in 2020 we suddenly have a worldwide crisis that took us all by surprise - the Corona Crisis. Suddenly people around the world started dying from an unknown virus that could be transmissed from person to person - it took us all a while to work out how people got effected, and we are still looking for a vaccine.

The side effect of this pandemic was that the whole economy grinded to a halt - airlines cancelled flights, people had to self isolate at home, shops and business closed their doors.

An other side effect was that suddenly the air polution levels worldwide dropped, wild animals started roaming the deserted streets. The world changed overnight in to a strange place, showing us the amazing effects of a worldwide lockdown.

Slowly we start to understand that our way of life before the pandemic will not be the way of life we will need to get used to in the weeks, months or even years to come.

People have to work from home for now, and it looks like many companies will have to continue this system for the foreseable future. If commuting by public transport to an office building, where you would be close to other people, still has the risk of infection, normal office work might not be an option.

During the lockdown i started working with a couple of remote team members on my project; bookingbox.com where we present a number of experts in the circular economy, sustainability and providers of products & services that can contribute to a more eco-friendly world.

The aim of the project is to let potential clients search for the expert they are looking for, book an appointment online for a consultation, or order products & services.

The first product we promote is a Reusable, Protective and Ecological Mouth Mask.

We launched the project at the end of march to a worldwide public and have a good number of visitors from around 76 countries now. A good start, but still a long way to go.

If you are interested to know more about the project, please let me know.

Kind Regards,

Peter Auwerx, Director Bookingbox Ltd
