Commemorating World Environment Day 2018

June 5 marks World Environment Day. Each World Environment Day is organized around a theme that focuses attention on an environmental concern. The theme for 2018, “Beat Plastic Pollution,” is a call to action for all of us to come together to consider how we can make changes in our everyday lives to reduce the burden of plastic pollution on our natural places, our wildlife, and our own health.

Let’s take a look at how some of our embassies and missions are taking action on World Environment Day 2018!
