You might know June 5 is World Environment Day, but what exactly is it all about?

Since 1974, the United Nations has promoted World Environment Day as a date to encourage action and awareness to protect the environment. Each year World Environment Day has a new host nation and a specific theme to address current environmental issues. India will host the official celebrations of 2018, with the theme being ‘Beat Plastic Pollution’.

Events will be held in over 100 countries and people are encouraged to focus locally, nationally or even globally. To get involved visit the official website and remember to use #BeatPlasticPollution to spread the word!
