World Environment Day is the world's biggest international day to celebrate and encourage environmental action. It has been held on the 5th of June annually since 1973 with more than 150 countries participating. The major themes usually concern climate change, nature and biodiversity loss, pollution and human/industrial waste.

This printable activity is aimed at helping our kids and students to challenge themselves to contribute by recycling an item every day for 30 days.
