World Environment Day
DisneyDan  Wednesday, June 5, 2013 9:35:35 AM
Hello everyone,

Today, 5th June, is the United Nations declared "World Environment Day".
It is a day where citizens of the world are encouraged to think about their environments, how they affect them, and what they can do to protect our planet from the damage being done.
This year the theme of World Environment Day - or WED as it is known (notice that, spooky huh?...) - is food waste.
The United Nations says that "food waste is an enormous drain on natural resources and a contributor to negative environmental impacts."
Their information page here has some shocking facts and figures about the affect food waste has on our planet.

I'm sure that you will all agree that there is more we can do, and I know our Disney Character friends would also want to contribute in whatever way they can!
This is Character Central after all, so here's a few of our Disney friends, from different environments, who would like to share the message of reducing waste, and saving our planet.
