Your Planet Needs You

World Environment Day 2009
Your Planet Needs You-UNite to Combat Climate Change

Commemorated yearly on 5 June, World Environment Day is one of the principal vehicles through which the United Nations stimulates worldwide awareness of the environment and enhances political attention and action.
The theme for World Environment Day 2009 is ’Your Planet Needs You – UNite to Combat Climate Change’. It reflects the urgency for nations to agree on a new deal and the links with overcoming poverty and improved management of forests.

From the moment you hit snooze on your solar-powered alarm clock to the point when you crawl into your eco-washed, organic cotton sheets, here’s a walk through of 30 easy ways to green your daily routine.

Our ‘do something’ tip for World Environment Day:

Flushing makes up one third of our total water use.
Convert your toilet to a low flush toilet – add a brick or two into the water tank, or a plastic bottle with stones or pebbles. This will displace a great deal of water instantly turning your toilet into one that uses far less water.
