See the World in a New Way for World Environment Day

Tuesday, June 5, is World Environment Day! Each year since 1974, the United Nations has encouraged worldwide awareness and action to protect the environment. This day is celebrated in more than 100 countries.

This year’s theme is beating plastic pollution with the slogan “If you can’t reuse it, refuse it.” On social media, you can use #BeatPlasticPollution to raise awareness for the issue.

The United States is home to many unique landscapes. We show these each year in our Pictometry® imagery calendar. Below we share more of our favorite images of the world we want to protect:
