Today is World Environment Day, celebrated every year on June 5, and run by the United Nations “to raise global awareness to take positive environmental action to protect nature and the planet Earth.” World Environment Day is a day when the United Nations invites each of the seven billion people on the planet to make one change towards more responsible consumption of resources. Whether you refuse a plastic bag, have a vegetarian dinner, take public transportation, or recycle your trash, each little step can make a big difference.
Make every day World Environment Day and take the time to read about climate change and its effects around the globe. Think about your impact and what you can do help protect the earth. Make it a goal to add new “green” habits to your lifestyle to lessen your carbon footprint. Share your ideas with family and friends.
Appreciate the beauty of the earth and its many gifts………
