Tomorrow is the 40th anniversary of the United Nations World Environment Day; this year’s theme is “Green Economy: Does It Include You?” A green economy as one which is low carbon, resource efficient, and socially inclusive. For details, visit their website at http://www.unep.org/wed/theme/.
So how can we help? One way is to recycle and reuse existing materials rather than put them into landfills. Here are some of our “green” WeAllSew projects and posts:
