In order to create more awareness regarding the plight of our environment and planet, we have a lot of commemorative dates on our yearly calendar. Each of these events can be celebrated in various ways, whether alone at home or with a group of people.
Needless to say, you don’t have to be a member of Greenpeace to make a positive change either. When every individual start taking responsibility for their actions and their repercussions, we could start seeing a change for the better sooner than we think.
You may think that some of the environmental awareness days on the calendar aren’t worth investigating, but it is exactly this train of thought that is detrimental to our environment. Can you imagine how big an impact it could make if every person in the world planted one tree on World Arbor Day?
It is for this reason that we have decided to share these dates and events with you here. There is always something that any individual can do, even if you just decide to make others aware of these campaigns.
Without further delay, in this post, we take a look at some of the most important environmental events you should be aware of this year.
