As promised in the first E-newsletter issue of 2022, we will highlight sustainable resolutions for you tailored for every month. In light of March, there are three environmental days worth acknowledging, appreciating, and celebrating!
18th March: Global Recycling Day 
One of the largest initiatives that aim to recognize, celebrate, and promote the importance of recycling. This day is known for action and to start preserving primary resources and securing the future of our planet.

22nd March: World Water Day
Is an annual United Nations observance day since 1993. It aims to focus its attention on the global water crisis. The UN recognized “the right to safe and clean drinking water and sanitation as a human right that is essential for the full enjoyment of life and all human rights.” (UNWATER, 2010)
