Happy Birthday to the Ultimate Sustainable Innovator
While we’d argue that every day is a good day to celebrate nature’s genius, each February we take time for a special celebration of what we like to call Life’s Birthday. Why? Because if we compress the age of Earth (4.5 billion years) into one calendar year February 25 would be the day life appears (3.8 billion years ago). Learn more about Earth’s Calendar Year and all of life’s milestones here. Here’s three easy steps to celebrate Life’s Birthday this year with us:
1. SIGN LIFE’S BIRTHDAY CARD!
We invite you to share any birthday wishes you may have for Life, fond or funny memories, and even future adventures in nature you wish to have. Videos and photos encouraged!
2. GET OUTSIDE WITH OUR NEW ISITES NATURE JOURNAL
Our newly released book aims to help readers get outside and learn to see what surrounds us in entirely new ways.
“iSites: Biomimetic Nature Journaling for Biomimicry” by Erin Rovalo is a hands-on journal with prompts for observing the natural world, asking the right questions so you can build your own collection of inspiring biological forms, processes, and systems.
In this book, you will use six “biomimicry lenses” to tap into design lessons, inspirations, and ideas waiting to be discovered in your own backyard and beyond, including the naturalist lens, function lens, operating conditions lens, Life’s Principles lens, ecology lens, and pattern lens.
Get celebratory pricing of $19.95 through the month of February (regular price is $24.99).
3. TRACK THE REST OF LIFE’S MILESTONES
The celebration doesn’t have to stop on February 25. You can celebrate Life and all the milestones throughout 2019 by clicking below to add all the milestone dates to your calendar.
