It’s World Environment Day And This Is What Several Brands In The UAE Are Doing To Take Part
It’s the day to remind us all that we have one Earth and one Earth only.
June 5 is World Environment Day, celebrated across the globe, and is the United Nations’ main drive to help encourage awareness and action for the protection of the environment.
Every day, the UAE is taking more and more strides to ensure that the country isn’t just futuristic in every aspect but that its current actions could help preserve and aid future generations to come.
A couple of UAE brands have also hopped on this day with their own initiatives
Like telecommunications provider Du, which has replaced all plastic bags in their stores to biodegradable ones
How amazing is that?
We have #OnlyOneEarth, let’s take care of it! On this #WorldEnvironmentDay, we’re committed to phasing out plastic bags across our retail stores with new biodegradable paper ones. 🛍️🌍 pic.twitter.com/EH1qoNojXt
