TAIPEI, Taiwan & LOS ANGELES--()--Reflecting Taiwan’s ongoing commitment to environmental responsibility, Taiwan Excellence – the symbol of the best and most innovative Taiwanese products – today announced the official launch of “Taiwan Excellence Earth Month,” a global sustainability initiative held in conjunction with World Environment Day. Echoing the spirit of this annual event, the campaign encourages everyday people to cultivate simple green habits in their lives and showcases the eco-conscious practices of Taiwanese innovators. Taiwan Excellence Earth Month aims to inspire thousands to take action through a variety of online and offline activities, culminating in a worldwide challenge and attractive green prizes celebrating the positive impact of collective action. The campaign runs from June 1-30, 2024, in the United States and is organized by the Taiwan International Trade Administration (TITA) and Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA).

Cultivating Green Habits Globally

The cornerstone of Taiwan Excellence Earth Month is “One Good Habit, Love the Earth,” a shared activity that encourages individual action at a global scale. The challenge prompts participants to embrace a small, eco-friendly action for 21 days – such as committing to a reusable water bottle or switching off lights when exiting a room – to build impactful behavioral change worldwide. Individuals who document their daily progress online will be eligible to win prizes from Taiwan Excellence award winners such as Acer, Giant Bicycles, and Paper Shoot. The challenge kicks off in the United States in June, with other Taiwan Excellence markets following suit from July through November in a “relay-style” approach. Featured markets will include the United States, European Union, Japan, Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand, and Malaysia. Entry rules and prizes vary by market.

“As we kick off Taiwan Excellence Earth Month, we acknowledge the profound impact our individual actions have on the well-being of our planet,” said Brian Lee, Executive Director of TAITRA. “With this campaign, we hope to ignite and unite people worldwide as well as showcase the remarkable eco-innovations of Taiwanese companies. Together, we can harness collective action and cutting-edge technology to forge a path toward a greener, more sustainable future for all.”
