World Wetlands Day: Our Contribution

World Wetlands Day: Our Contribution

World Wetlands Day highlights the vital role wetlands play in our planet's health and prosperity. Originating as an international observance on February 2nd, 1971, this day marks the signing of the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands of International Importance in the Iranian city of Ramsar. The Ramsar Convention, named after the city where it was adopted, is the first global treaty dedicated to the conservation and sustainable use of wetlands. Since then, World Wetlands Day has evolved into a global platform for raising awareness about the value of wetlands and the urgent need to protect these critical ecosystems. At Rewardown, we recognize the importance of wetland conservation and strive to contribute positively to environmental preservation.


Wetland Importance:

From lush marshes to serene swamps, wetlands are vital habitats that play a crucial role in supporting biodiversity, regulating water cycles, and mitigating climate change.
Biodiversity Hotspots:

Wetlands are among the most biologically diverse ecosystems on Earth, providing habitat for a wide variety of plant and animal species. They support a rich array of flora and fauna, including many endangered and migratory species.

Carbon Sequestration:

Wetlands play a crucial role in carbon sequestration, storing large amounts of carbon in their soils and vegetation. This helps mitigate climate change by reducing the concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.


Water Purification:

Wetlands act as natural filters, trapping sediment and pollutants from water as it flows through them. They help improve water quality by removing excess nutrients, contaminants, and sediments, making them vital for maintaining clean water supplies.


Flood Regulation:

Wetlands serve as natural flood buffers, absorbing and storing excess water during heavy rainfall and storm events. They help reduce the risk of flooding by slowing down the flow of water and releasing it gradually over time.


Shoreline Stabilization:

Wetlands help stabilize coastlines and prevent erosion by absorbing wave energy and reducing the impact of storms and tidal surges. They act as natural barriers, protecting coastal communities and infrastructure from erosion and inundation.


Threatened Ecosystems:

Despite their ecological importance, wetlands are among the most threatened ecosystems globally. They are increasingly degraded and lost due to factors such as urbanization, agricultural expansion, consumerism, pollution, and climate change. Conservation efforts are crucial to protect and restore wetlands for future generations. 


How are we contributing to the conservation of wetlands?

Using Recycled Down:

By using recycled down materials in our products, we actively promote sustainable practices and reduce the demand for virgin down sourced from wetlands. Traditional down collection methods often involve harvesting feathers from waterfowl, which can disrupt wetland ecosystems and threaten biodiversity.
Virgin down sourcing can lead to habitat destruction, disturbance of nesting sites, and depletion of bird populations, ultimately impacting the delicate balance of wetland ecosystems. By choosing recycled down, we avoid contributing to these negative environmental impacts and support ethical practices by collecting our feathers from post-consumed down products.
Our commitment to using recycled down aligns with our values of ethical sourcing. Responsible choices like these are super important in order to minimize ecological footprint and protect areas like the wetlands for future generations.

We are proud to be part of the solution to wetland conservation and think that together, we can make a huge difference in preserving the biodiversity and ecological integrity of wetland areas.
Let's unite in our efforts to celebrate, protect, and preserve the wonders of wetlands around the globe. Join us today!
