March awareness days-Week 2: Environmental Awareness Day: Global Recycling Day celebrated March 18, 2021

March 18, 2021

Environmental observances and world day campaigns are a great way to raise awareness for a cause that is meaningful to you, your organization or your family.

Observances during Environmental Awareness Days can include recycling, World Ozone Day that encourages awareness for the reduction of emissions; or World Water Day that brings awareness to water conservation and clean water. Then there is World Wildlife Day. The World Wildlife Day brings awareness of wildlife and promotes wildlife conservation. The International Day of Forests celebrates and raises awareness of the importance of all types of forests. During International Day of Forests, countries are encouraged to undertake local, national and international efforts to organize activities involving forests and trees. If you and your family want to bring awareness to World Water Day, for example, you could promote your family’s water conservation efforts or plant a tree in honor of International Day of Forests or celebrate efforts to reduce emissions on World Ozone Day.

March 18, 2021 is celebrated as Global Recycling Day. Global Recycling Day was created in 2018 to help recognize, and celebrate, the importance recycling plays in preserving our precious primary resources and securing the future of our planet. It is a day for the world to come together, and put the planet first. Teachers are encouraged to talk about Global Recycling Day during class and encourage students to reduce, reuse and recycle. When we reduce, reuse and recycle:

• It keeps waste from piling up in landfills
• It saves energy
• It preserves landfills space
• It prevents global warming
• It reduces water pollution
• It’s good for the environment
• It protects wildlife

The Global World Recycling Day Foundation wants everyone to promote the vitality of recycling across the globe and to showcase its vital role in preserving the future of the planet. Let’s advocate and pray for change so the mindset of people around the world will begin seeing recyclables as a resource.

Beloved, let’s begin to think long and hard about what we see as waste as everything we throw away and not recycle could be a wasted opportunity to help transform our waste to help secure the future of our planet.
