June 05: " World Environment Day"

Commemorated every year on 5 June, World Environment Day is one of the principal vehicles through which the United Nations stimulates worldwide awareness of the environment and enhances political attention and action. The theme is Green Economy: Does it include you? The aim of the day is to:
1. Give a human face to environmental issues;
2. Empower people to become active agents of sustainable and equitable development;
3. Promote an understanding that communities are pivotal to changing attitudes towards environmental issues;
4. Advocate partnership which will ensure all nations and peoples enjoy a safer and more prosperous future. (from greeningtheblue)
5 ways to be eco–friendly According to Ecology Fund:
1. Bike, use public transit, carpool to work, drive slower, keep your tires inflated. One-third of all traffic is commuters.
2. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Compost.
3.Conserve water. Don't let faucets run. Never water your lawn at midday.
4. Consider the environmental costs of major decisions and purchases.
5. Plant a tree with a child. Take a walk in the woods, or plant trees which store CO2. Teaching our children to love and care for the planet is the most important thing we can do to insure the future of humankind.
Remember, Your health is affected by the environment in which you live..;)
