World Environment Day is an annual global event sponsored by the United Nations that encourages worldwide awareness and action for the protection of the environment. This year’s theme, ‘Connecting People to Nature’, challenged people across 100+ countries to get outside and into nature in order to make a positive impact on the environment.

Hundreds of Daramic employees participated in the event, which led to the planting of 500+ trees near Daramic facilities. The effort hallmarks the importance of conserving our environment in our communities and the world.

“The environment and its conservation is something we can all rally around, Dave Lowe, VP of Operations said. Daramic took the opportunity to reflect on the environment and what each person can do to make a positive impact. We are proud to have participated in the event.”
