Today is World Environment Day! June 5th has been designated by the United Nations as World Environment Day to promote “worldwide awareness and action for the protection of our environment.” 2018’s World Environment Day is centered around beating plastic pollution.
The 2018 World Environment Day seeks to influence change in these 4 key areas:
- Reducing Single Use Plastics
- Improving Waste Management
- Phasing Out Microplastics
- Promoting Research into Alternatives
The UN shares some dismal statistics on why the message “Beat Plastic Pollution” is so dire right now.
