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.
