Today is June 5th, which means...Happy World Environment Day!
“World Environment Day is an annual event that is aimed at being the biggest and most widely celebrated global day for positive environmental action. World Environment Day activities take place all year round and climax on 5 June every year, involving everyone from everywhere.”
This celebration began in 1972 by the United Nations as a way to spread global awareness and bring about political change. On a personal level, the UN uses World Environment Day to challenge the individual to take action and responsibility for our own personal contributions and commitment to a more sustainable and greener future!
