The first week of October marks a recurrence that we very much love, here at Inna Organic: World Animal Day.The global event occurs every October 4th – Francis of Assisi’s feast day, the patron saint of all animals. Let’s find out a bit more about this celebration, and look into some ideas to show your support – on World Animal Day, and on every other day of the year. .
What Is World Animal Day?
This recurrence was started in 1925 by Heinrich Zimmerman, who organized the first World Animal Day at Berlin’s Sports Palace. A remarkable total of over 5,000 people took part in the event.Interestingly, the first event didn’t take place on October 4th but at the end of March, due to the venue being already booked on Zimmerman’s originally chosen day. From 1929 onwards and up until these days, though, World Animal Day began to take place on October 4th, as initially intended.
The purpose of World Animal Day is pretty apparent from its very name: to celebrate animals of all species while enhancing animal welfare standards around the world.Today, this event represents a wonderful opportunity for the many animal welfare organizations to come together and become a real global force, working in harmony towards a better, safer, and greener planet for our animal friends.
Wherever you are in the world, you can celebrate World Animal Day by connecting with your local animal welfare groups, and play an active role in championing and safeguarding the rights of animals.
How Can I Show My Support?
There are many different ways in which you can support World Animal Day. For example, by taking part in one (or more!) of the various events that are happening in your area – both in-person and online.You can also participate in activities such as fundraising, or get on board with the latest, fun, social media challenges to raise money and awareness for animal welfare worldwide. Another great way to support World Animal Day is by choosing skincare products that not only pamper and respect your skin, but are also great and nurturing for the environment.
The Inna Organic Promise
We believe that taking the best possible care of yourself and your body will only happen if you choose products that are also good for the planet. This is the reason why all our products are completely cruelty-free, organic, and non-GMO certified.
At Inna Organic, we have a zero-tolerance policy towards toxic ingredients and harmful chemicals, as they are dangerous to both our skin and the ecosystem. When crafting our skincare solutions, we carefully handpick only gentle, organic, and natural ingredients, which means that you will never find artificial fragrances or substances like parabens, phthalates, silicones and sulfates.
To stay true to our organic values and promise, we are also committed to never testing any of our products on animals. Animal testing, in fact, violates COSMOS standards as well as our core philosophy of “Clean Beauty. Clean Conscience.”
At Inna Organic, clean beauty means both using clean ingredients and reconnecting with our inner, more natural self, as well as with our planet and all its inhabitants. We are very proud to be the first and only Taiwan-based skincare brand to have earned dual certification from both COSMOS and the Environmental Working Group. We are constantly working in partnership with these organizations to ensure that our products continue to meet their high standards of organic skincare.
