World Environment Day – Go Wild for Life
World Environment Day
World Environment Day is celebrated on June 5 every year. The awareness day is run by the United Nations Environment Programme and aims to raise global awareness to take positive action to protect nature and the environment.
The World Environment Day was established way back in 1972 and features a new specific theme every year. This year’s theme is ‘go wild for life – zero tolerance for the illegal wildlife trade.’ The goal is to raise awareness and start to combat the killing and smuggling of iconic elephants, rhinos, tigers, gorillas and sea turtles.
Although we might not be in a position to directly aid you or your business in this fantastic cause, we do have a vast range of products you can use as fundraising tools. We also have a great range of eco-friendly products which are made from sustainable or recycled products, helping the environment on their own.
One way you can show your support for World Environment Day is showing that your organisation is a cleaner and greener company. Making sure lights are turned off at the end of the day. Computers and printers turned off when you leave for the evening. For a company of 100 employees, just by turning computers off the company can save around £6,500 a year.
Another way to promote a better carbon footprint in your working environment is using sustainable and recycled stationery. Recycled pens, pencils, rubbers, rulers and notepads are readily available for you, your employees and your customers to take advantage of. We can print the artwork of your choice on these products too.
We’ve just looked at making the office and workplace cleaner and greener using sustainable stationery but we have some products which really will make your workplace a greener place to be.
We have a Desktop Garden Tube available. These fantastic products are a recycled aluminium tube which contains a garden set to grow your very own desktop flower. If the aluminium tube doesn’t sound like your think, we also have tiny terracotta pots which soil and seeds. You can grow flowers such as lavender, daisies and sunflowers.
Whether you’re supporting the World Environment Day or your charity, school or business is looking to encourage a better carbon footprint we have some great promotional products available.
