World Environment Day 2017

World Environment Day (1)

Monday, June 5th is World Environment Day 2017, and Green Worldwide Shipping is excited to celebrate!

World Environment Day is the United Nations’ most important day for encouraging worldwide awareness and action for the protection of our environment. Since it began in 1974, it has grown to become a global platform for public outreach that is widely celebrated in over 100 countries.

The theme for World Environment Day 2017, ‘Connecting People with Nature,’ implores us to get outdoors and into nature, to appreciate its beauty and its importance, and to take forward the call to protect the Earth that we share.

Green Worldwide is celebrating this World Environment Day by reaffirming our commitment to the UN Global Compact, and the sustainable business goals Green Worldwide is committed to achieving.

How can you celebrate World Environment Day?

Get outside! The World Environment Day website encourages the people of the world to get outside, go to a park, and interact with nature. They also encourage picking up 10 or 100 pieces of trash or joining local cleanup efforts. To learn more about World Environment Day events in your area, visit www.worldenvironmentday.global.
