As part of United Nation’s project, which was initially commenced during the year 1974, 5 June each year is observed as the World Environment Day.
The big day is a flagship movement to lift up consciousness around the unfolding ecological matters, their reasons and how to cope with them.
Over the years, around 143 nations have taken part in the episode. Every year, World Environment Day boats of a new subject, and in 2018, the theme is to stay away from plastic contamination.

Gautam Gambhir - I think instead of #WorldEnvironmentDay let’s rename it as #WorldSurvivalDay. May be then we’ll realise we are on the brink of our carelessness & greed-infused disasters. Just look at water crisis in Shimla.
Alia Bhatt - #BeatPlasticPollution by switching to steel or glass bottles today! Plastic bottles take 450 years or more to decompose, harming us and our environment. I’m now one step closer towards purging plastic from my life. Hope you guys will make the switch too!#LetsCoexist @deespeak
Arjun Kapoor - It takes one small step to #BeatPlasticPollution! I’ve replaced using plastic bottles with a metal one. It’s convinient & environment friendly. Tagging @AnushkaSharma @RanveerOfficial & @ParineetiChopra to take up the challenge & inspire others to choose a sustainable future.
