Actio, EPA, Hillary Clinton and Gisele Salute World Environment Day

EPA says it is proud to join the international community in commemorating World Environment Day (WED)on Sunday, June 5.  EPA joins its partners in the America’s Great Outdoors (AGO) initiative:
  1. the Department of the Interior
  2. the Department of Agriculture 
  3. the White House Council on Environmental Quality
This year’s theme is Forests: Nature at Your Service.  U.S. citizens are encouraged to participate by spending the weekend enjoying the country’s iconic national parks and forests, wildlife refuges, and cultural and historic sites, as well as neighborhoods and city parks, community gardens and school yards.

The United States is proud to join with the international community to mark June 5 as World Environment Day," said Hillary Clinton in a statement, "as we have since 1973. And I note with pleasure the selection of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, as North American Host City, reaffirming its leadership in regional innovation and in the transformation to a greener economy."

But Claudio Braz Ferro, Chief Supply Officer at Anheuser-Busch InBev, weighs in with the hot ticket:
Supermodel Gisele Bündchen and actor Don Cheadle, UNEP Goodwill Ambassadors, are in a 'face-off' this year to raise awareness about the world’s forests. They’ll plant a tree or two for every project that’s registered on the WED website.
