Happy Earth Day from Bar Globe World Blog!

Many people and websites will be wishing everybody a happy Earth Day, but what is that and how did it start?

Image of various bar globes from BarGlobeWorld.com.April 22 draws global attention to the importance of environmental protection (or it should). It is celebrated by more than 192 countries throughout the world.  It was celebrated for the first time officially in 1970 in 2 thousand universities and colleges, more than 10 thousand elementary and middle schools, as well as hundreds of communities in the USA. Many individuals and environmental organizations hope that Earth Day will become a day that causes policy changes and influences human behavior towards the environment.

We at Bar Globe World applaud the efforts of the coordinators, the nonprofit organization Earth Day Network. The chairman Denis Hayes, who actually organized the first Earth Day celebration in 1970, now claim that this day is the largest secular holiday in the world, celebrated by more than a billion people annually.

And what better day to purchase a bar globe than this. Have a look at some of the new globe bars we have in our in the Design Collections by Zoffoli.



Bar Globe World Is Back

You may already know from our Facebook page or other sources that Bar Globe World is back up after being down for a little while. The truth is, there were some technical issues that our web hosts could not (or I’m guessing more like would not) resolve, so we decided to part ways.

Desk accessory globe with clock from Bar Globe WorldWe have several new bar globes on offer, and even entire new bar globe collections by the Italian manufacturer Zoffoli. But we will be sure to write a separate blog post to tell you about those.

Unfortunately there are also some discontinued products like this Pewter Desk Clock with 16th Century Replica Globe. You can find this and other clearance or marked down globe products in our Sales and Deals section – a page you should visit often to make sure you don’t miss out.

We actually only have one pewter desk clock left, even the manufacturer Zoffoli doesn’t have any, so if you like it you should hurry and grab it!

Our website is now on WordPress, just like this blog, and we’re really happy about it – we make all the decisions about what our website can and can’t do. No more web builders for BarGlobeWorld.com – we are going to have what we need on our website and we won’t have to deal with “sorry, that can’t be done.” Now if we don’t have it, it’s our own fault and there’s no blaming anyone else.

Saying that, we are pretty new at this so please let us know if you encounter any technical or other issues. For that matter, we would appreciate if you simply browse through the new Bar Globe World site and design and let us know what you think – we want all opinions, good or bad. You can be blunt if you want, we promise we can take it.
