How World Environment Day is Improving Our Environment

There is no denying that the living habits of humans is taking a toll on the environment. With increased trash in our oceans and a major change in environmental patterns, it can be difficult to see the positivity within these issues. Luckily at Hooplaha, finding the positivity in every situation is our specialty, and to celebrate World Environment Day we are doing just that.


Did you know that the celebration of World Environment Day began in 1974? That's almost 45 years of dedication to improving our environment! It's the UN's most important day for encouraging environmental protection. This call to action is now celebrated in over 100 countries. Each year has a specific theme that focuses on a particular environmental concern. The theme for this year is beating plastic pollution. Check out these important videos below that embody the meaning behind World Environment Day.

1. Highlights of Nature's Beauty

One of the most compelling parts about nature is all the beauty is has to offer. From sunsets to waterfalls, it can sometimes feel like we are living in a live art piece. This video gives us a glimpse into the beauty and uniqueness of the environment. Sit back, relax, and enjoy all the peacefulness our environment has to offer.

2. Low-Income Middle Schoolers Learn the Importance of Environmental Protection

The residents of Watts, a neighborhood in south Los Angeles, live below the poverty line. Many of the residents do not have affordable access to healthy foods. Nicole Landers decided to open the Community Healing Garden at a local middle school. She teaches the middle school students how to plant and care for vegetables. This garden is instilling the importance of environmental protection into the minds of these young students while also helping them maintain a healthy diet.

3. An Apology Letter to Future Generations

Prince Ea creates a thought provoking apology letter to future generations. This video gives insight into what the future of our environment looks like if we do not make a change.

With consideration to these videos we ask you: What can you do each day to improve the environment? How will you create a safe home for future generations to live in? Will you stop using plastic straws? Will you start using reusable water bottles? You can even sign up to be part of World Environment day at http://worldenvironmentday.global/. Whatever change you choose to make, the smallest actions are part of a larger step to creating a healthier, more livable environment.

WWII Vet Runs Cross Country to Save His D-Day Ship

Ernie Andrus, now in his 90's, is running cross-country to raise money in order to put the LST 325, the ship he served on in the Navy during WWII, back on the beach in Normandy where it supported the D-Day invasion on June 6, 1944.
