Nikken is celebrating Earth Day on 22nd April 2021
“A healthy planet is not an option — it is a necessity.” Earthday.org
Our Earth needs to stay healthy to support our jobs, livelihoods, health and happiness. It is up to each and every one of us to Restore Our Earth not just because we care about the natural world, but because we live on it.
There are many things we can do to help restore and reconnect to it at the same time because protecting our planet, starts with each and every single one of us.
The three R’s: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle… Cutting down on what we throw away and following the three “R’s” will help conserve natural resources and landfill space.
Community clean up… Whether it’s two people or ten, a well organized clean up can have a major impact on our Earth. Finding the right location (a local park or community streets) this action can help not only to create long lasting friendship, but most importantly to help restore our earth and reconnect to Mother Nature in the all-important great outdoors. While you’re there, you can even plant a tree! Trees provide food and oxygen. They help save energy, clean the air, and help combat climate change.
Finding new ways to reconnect to Mother Nature1 might help many of us overcome modern day challenges such as stress caused by a busy lifestyle or feeling secluded in these challenging times.
Emerging scientific research has revealed a surprisingly positive and overlooked environmental factor on health: direct physical contact with the vast supply of electrons on the surface of the Earth. Modern lifestyle separates humans from such contact.
Reconnection with the Earth’s electrons has been found to promote intriguing physiological changes and subjective reports of well-being.2 Grounding (or Earthing) refers to connecting with Earth. Connecting with the Earth’s negative charge can help reduce and neutralize unwanted positive charges and help shield against Electromagnetic fields (EMFs), which we build up in our daily lives – restoring a healthful natural balance. There’s nothing that compares with feeling the Earth under bare feet or swimming in a lake or ocean, so we should do those activities as often as we can.
Urban living often prohibits the natural ways to reconnect with nature. Nikken’s KenkoGround® (#88011) is a conductive grounding mat that serves to reconnect you with Mother Nature by connecting to the Earth’s negative charge and makes grounding easy to accomplish indoors. Meanwhile, indoor living continues and the KenkoGround® can help make a difference in how we feel overall.
With its built-in silver ions, implanted by vacuum sputtering technology for high efficacy of conduction, this portable grounding mat also benefits from antibacterial properties. The Hydrophobic technology included in its top layer also creates water resistant properties.
