World Environment Day (WED) - 5 June 2014

World Environment Day (WED) - 5 June 2014

World environment day (WED) is a collaborative event held throughout the world. Although held yearly, the aim is to raise continuous awareness for our environment internationally.
This year WED is to be hosted in Barbados, a small Carribean island rising through the ranks due to its solar energy initiatives and committment to becoming a green economy.
WED is celebrated through many activities world-wide including festivals, photography competitions and fashion shows with clothes made from recycable goods.

South Africa is celebrating WED under the slogan: "Raise your voices, not the sea levels". This theme aligns to global warming.
We as South Africans can certainly increase our 'eco foot-print' by:

  • being on the look out and reporting eco-offenses to the municipality and associations.
  • don't turn your back on litter, it is creeping more and more into our lives on the streets, in our rivers and in the mountain!
  • be aware of your impact on the environment.
  • try to reduce your carbon foot-print as far as possible.

Remember, every little bit helps!
