Since 1974, June 5 is recognized by the United Nations as the day to raise awareness on emerging environmental issues and sustainable consumption. Participation has grown to 143 countries in recent years. The 2017 theme is ‘Connecting People to Nature – in the city and on the land, from the poles to the equator’; learn more about this international effort at the official website We would like to take a moment to think about our impact, and how we can better interact with the environment to produce positive environmental changes within our industry.
