Today is World Environment Day! This annual event hosted by the United Nations Environmental Programme is a worldwide movement to bring awareness and action to environmental issues. The theme this year is “Seven Billion Dreams. One Planet. Consume with Care.”
Take time today to appreciate the beautiful environment and take a few extra moments to ensure you are doing your part to care for it. Flip a switch, shorten a shower, and make sure your recyclables end up where they should. Take a walk in a local park or buy some local produce to observe the environment around you and what benefits you reap from it.
Most importantly, consume the world’s resources with care; if we all 7 billion of us work together we can make a big impact! Find out more with this quick video clip and the UNEP website to join the movement and get involved. Don’t forget to buzz your sustainable actions on the JouleBug app!
