This year UNEP (United Nations Environment Programme) marks fifty years of World Environment Day with the theme of #BeatPlasticPollution for 2023. This international event has 150 countries across the United Nations promoting one common goal, raising awareness and celebrating environmental action. The event has taken place annually since 1973 and has grown to be the largest global platform for environmental outreach.
The day will be celebrated worldwide on Monday 5th June 2023. There are more than 400 million tonnes of plastic produced every year worldwide and less than 10% is recycled. It is time for action. To find out more, visit https://www.worldenvironmentday.global/
