World Environment Day comes to Murwillumbah

THE World Environment Day Festival is always a huge and colourful affair.

This year promises to live up to its name with a range of activities, stalls and entertainment.

Running on Sunday June 2 at Knox Park, Murwillumbah, the United Nations World Environment Day theme is Think. Eat. Save.

The Caldera Environment Centre is bringing together community groups, sustainable businesses and individuals committed to protecting the environment and ecologically sustainable living.

Think. Eat. Save is an anti-food waste and food loss campaign that encourages people to reduce their footprint.

"We will focus on how we can think, eat and avoid waste, to better save and protect the environment of the Tweed," said a spokesman for the institute.

"We will inform, educate, role model and spread resources to the larger community about environmental action in a fun, entertaining, all inclusive, engaging way.

The day runs from 10am to 3pm.
