The idea

In 1970, Earth Day emerged as a spontaneous student movement in the USA. Earth Day was intended to demonstrate to the Washington establishment and the public that there was an environmental movement in North America and that nature would now have a powerful lobby. Since then, April 22nd has been Earth Day, celebrated worldwide. The popular campaign was founded by the socially committed US Senator Gaylord Nelson. In Canada, as in many other countries around the world, the idea of ​​Earth Day is closely intertwined with national environmental policy. 

The 25th Earth Day was celebrated on April 22, 1995 as an environmental day of action by over 200 million people worldwide. Earth Day is celebrated today in more than 150 countries around the world. The aim of this campaign, which touches all nations, is to involve citizens, and especially young people, in a creative environmental project. To this day, Earth Days have always remained neutral, providing support, networking and creating media presence for the many local environmental initiatives.
On April 22, 1997, a local Earth Day, Earth Day Stuttgart, was held for the first time.


Earth Day as a podium and organizer: the actors are the people, associations, organizations, scientists, media who see Earth Day as a stage for dialogue and an all-round spirit of initiative, as a popular campaign for an ecologically influenced lifestyle and who make their commitment public here. The program focuses on environmental education in schools, environmental popular actions to develop an ecological, sustainable lifestyle, as well as the organization of symposia on local and global environmental strategies.

The German Earth Day movement is now brought together in a national committee as a non-profit environmental organization based in Frankfurt/Main. The Earth Day International German Committee e.V. was founded in 1994 and primarily wants to sustainably expand and maximize Agenda 21 adopted at the UN Environmental Summit in Rio in 1992 and therefore calls on all citizens: "Do something for the earth, be environmentally fit and demonstrate your concern on Earth Day."

The EARTH WEEK and Vintage Kontor

For every order we receive during earth week, we save with our partner yook  one square meter of rainforest. 

Why do we focus on forest projects? 

Trees use the climate-damaging CO2 from the air to grow and are therefore not only an important, renewable raw material, but also completely natural climate protectors. In addition, they filter rainwater, stabilize soils, provide fresh air and are a central habitat for us humans and millions of animals, plants and insects. 

With your purchase you are already doing something for the climate. Why? Because you only buy vintage products from us, things that have already been produced and therefore do not need to be remade.
