Buenos Días Jammers and Happy Earth Day to you!
Did you know? Earth Day was created in 1970 and is now celebrated by more than 192 countries each year! Earth Day promotes the concept of peace on earth, although recently it has been adapted to focus on environmentalism, recycling and renewable energy.
At BTCjam we celebrate Earth Day by offering Green Loans. What’s a Green Loan? A Green Loan is a loan that is used to improve the environment. A Green Loan could be as simple as buying solar panels for your house, a down payment on a fuel-efficient hybrid car or maybe just new tires and a helmet for your bike, to get you back out on the road.
BTCjam is also contributing to Earth Day by creating all of our loans online, without any paperwork. At BTCjam we did more than 12,000 loans last year, and that’s a lot of paper! It takes more than 24 trees to create a ton of paper and over 500,000 trees per week are killed for the Sunday Newspaper. That’s a lotta trees!
I celebrated Earth Day by walking to work and using mass transit. How did you celebrate Earth Day? Leave your answer in the comments below.
