On World Environment Day, the United Nations’ annual day that encourages worldwide awareness and action for the protection of the environment, nonprofits, communities, companies and individuals around the globe will be working to beat plastic pollution.
Plastic pollution is a global problem that’s harming both people and wildlife, so this year’s theme of beating plastic pollution encourages those around the world to help combat the plastic pollution crisis via cleanups, educational campaigns, waste reduction pledges and more.
In celebration of World Environment Day, Waste360 has rounded up 10 events taking place across the globe in the coming days. Have an event or initiative you would like to share? Head on over to Twitter and mention @Waste360 with hashtags #BeatPlasticPollution and #WorldEnvironmentDay.
