World Environment Day

June 5 is World Environment Day - a day for positive environmental action.  World Environment Day is sponsored by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and has been celebrated every year since the 1972 UN Conference on the Human Environment.  UNEP uses the day as a call for political attention and action on environmental issues of concern. This year, the focus is on reducing food waste.  For more informaton and resources, visit the UNEP website.

And the Pope has described throwing away food is like stealing from the poor and the hungry.
