EarthDay2021 with Kendal Mint Co

This week, Thursday 22nd April marks #EarthDay2021 and at Kendal Mint Co. we are genuinely passionate about reducing waste, particularly in our beautiful home The Lake District.

"As the world returns to normal, we can't just go back to business-as-usual."

Earth Day, 2021

This week we are raising awareness for #EarthDay by:

  1. Re-introducing the #KendalMintCleanUp campaign – grab some gloves and a bag before your next adventure and grab at least 3 pieces of litter along the way. Tag us @kendalmintco with #KendalMintCleanUp for a chance to win.
  2. Re-focusing our GRN NRG promise using the #MyEverest campaign – from now on, every penny raised through #MyEverest will go into developing & delivering sustainable products for you.
  3. Celebrating our 100% Recyclable and Biodegradable products that we're so proud of with featured offers.
