A Toxics-Free Future


HOPE media release: World Environment Day, June 5th 2015

June 5 is a special day for groups like HOPE Australia (Householders’ Options to Protect the Environment) as each year they join with like-minded folk in over 100 countries to celebrate World Environment Day, raising awareness and encouraging positive action for the environment.


This year the theme “Seven Billion Dreams. One Planet. Consume with Care.”, explores sustainable living - an issue particularly close to the heart of HOPE Australia.


Taking responsibility for our relationship with the environment at an individual level is the first step away from critical tipping points of resource exhaustion and irrevocable change, “Think globally - act locally”.


World Environment Day isn’t just about individual action; it’s about celebrating the collective power of billions and the positive impact you can help generate for our planet.


At current levels of production and consumption; and with the global population set to increase by a further 3 billion, it is estimated by 2050 we will need the equivalent of three planets to sustain our way of living.


Living sustainability means doing more with less, exploring ways to minimize pollution, utilizing renewables and supporting “best practice” management of our remaining natural resources.


HOPE Australia and World Environment Day recognise the idea that economic growth and sound resource management aren’t mutually exclusive, we can and should have both.


World Environment Day is an opportunity to connect with groups like HOPE and acknowledge our responsibility to become the agents of change and create a sustainable future.


World Environment Day is an initiative of the United Nations Environmental Program; visit World Environment Day ( for more information and check out HOPE Australia ( )for details on how you can affect change in your community.
