Why are we called This Earth?
Our name reflects our commitment to responsibility and care towards This Earth and its inhabitants.
🌍 Where Does Our Company Name "This Earth" Come From?
At "This Earth," our name is deeply rooted in the rich literary heritage of William Shakespeare's play, "Richard II," Act 2, Scene 1. In this timeless speech, John of Gaunt extols England as a blessed and noble land, symbolising the power and authority of the English throne. The lines are as follows:
"This royal throne of kings, this sceptred isle,
This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars,
This other Eden, demi-paradise,
This fortress built by Nature for herself
Against infection and the hand of war,
This happy breed of men, this little world,
This precious stone set in the silver sea,
Which serves it in the office of a wall,
Or as a moat defensive to a house
Against the envy of less happier lands,
This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England."
The phrase "This Sceptred Isle" has since become synonymous with England, evoking a sense of pride, heritage, and grandeur. Our company, "This Earth," draws inspiration from this powerful reference to emphasise the importance of our planet, its natural beauty, resources, and the urgent need for preservation and protection.
Our name also reflects our commitment to responsibility and care towards this Earth and its inhabitants. We are dedicated to environmental sustainability and global well-being, believing that every individual and business has a role to play in creating a better world.
By associating ourselves with this meaningful literary reference, we aim to inspire a sense of connection and responsibility among our customers and stakeholders towards our shared home, "This Earth." Together, let's work towards a brighter and greener future for generations to come. 🌿💚 #ThisEarth #Sustainability #EnvironmentalResponsibility #Preservation #ThisSceptredIsle #Inspiration
