Every year on June 5th, it’s important to take the time to recognize World Environment Day. This year Canada is hosting the event. They have chosen “Connecting People to Nature” as this year’s theme. Since 1972, World Environment Day has been bringing people together all around the globe to take part in causes such as, cleaning up the oceans, planting trees and discussing the effects of climate change.
This year’s theme is all about motivating everyone to spend more time outside and to enjoy and observe nature. To be connected with nature in a more intimate way.
National park fees are either being waived or reduced to encourage you to go outside! Whether or not you are in Canada, remember to take a step outside and admire what nature has to offer us.
Some fun outdoor activities are:
- Finding shapes in clouds
- Hiking to the peak of a mountain
- Skipping Rocks in a lake
What other outdoor activities do you enjoy alone, with a friend and with family members?
Here at Teasia, we believe everyday should be World Environment Day. We are committed to helping change the world we live in for the better. Teasia processes all of our teas naturally so that you can enjoy nature at its finest through every brewed leaf. We know that when you put good in, you get good out. We are also passionate about supporting charities who support the environment. A portion of all of our proceeds are always donated towards charities in the areas of environment, education, healthcare and poverty. Some of the environmental charities we partner with include: Arbor Day Foundation, Waste Ventures and, The Nature Conservancy, to name a few.
Use June 5th as a jump start to the beginning of your close relationship with nature. Go barefoot, have a picnic with your family and watch for stars at night.Remember to take the time to say thank you for how much this planet has given to us. “From your backyard to your favorite national park, nature is closer than you think. It’s time to get out and enjoy it.”
