We're celebrating World Environment Day WED today. Similar to Earth Day, it's a holiday created by the United Nations to raise global awareness of the need to take positive environmental action. The theme of this year's WED is "Green Economy" and the idea that "a small step to save the earth is in your hands. Do just one small thing today…because the Green Economy includes you!"
At Vermont Woods Studios Fine Furniture we're re-visiting our Earth Day “Green Up Your Workday Challenge" today. We're doing some little things around the office, like turning the air conditioning off and printing less. Looking for something even easier than that? Two mouse clicks will add your name to the list of almost a million people who are calling on world leaders at the Rio+20, United Nations Conference (in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on June 20) to end fossil fuel subsidies around the world.
These ideas may not sound like much, but if we all do something, it adds up to a greener world.
Please join us! Visit our Facebook page and let us know what you're doing for WED.
