Wishing the United Nations’ World Environment Day, a belated Happy 50th birthday for last Sunday! Celebrated on the 5th of June each year it started way back in 1972. Wow! Was this idea way ahead of its time? Or is the environment an area that still needs far more focus and attention 50 years later?
🌎 In the universe are billions of galaxies,
🌍 In our galaxy are billions of planets,
🌏 But there is #OnlyOneEarth.
🏻 Let’s take care of it.
Did you know we are currently using the equivalent of 1.6 Earths to maintain our way of life, and ecosystems cannot keep up with our demands. We need to change our habits and ways from ones that are harming the planet to those that can heal it.
It might seem like a huge, unsurmountable challenge that dwarfs the individual’s influence, but we can all play our part. Every single one of us can make a difference! So yesterday the team at We Are Acuity decided to spend their lunch hour collecting litter from their local environment.
As well as being great to be outside in the fresh air, it was meaningful to feel like we are all making a difference in some small way. It’s just one of a number of ways that we are looking to be kinder to the environment.
✅ Cycling to work encouraged and supported
✅ A focus on reducing our energy consumption
✅ EV charging available at work
✅ Hybrid working encourage to reduce emissions
✅ Caring for our local environment with initiatives like litter-picking
The more we raise our voices, play our part, emphasise what needs to be done and point out who is responsible, the faster change will come. Change comes through unified local and global action. To find out more search #OnlyOneEarth
