This year pledge yourself to help in reduction of food wastage, which in turn will help save money and minimise the environmental impact of food production. It encourages people to be more aware of the environmental impact of their food choices.

As a world citizen it is the responsibility of every citizen to help maintain the ecological balance.

Here are five things that you can do as a global citizen on World Environment Day:

Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Renew, Recycle: If you're not already into this habit, it's a good day of the year to start. These 5R's are magic mantras when it comes to environmental conservation and sustainable usage.

Build a small farm or garden: We know it's difficult to find space in a metropolitan city, but if you're blessed with one, make and maintain a small farm or garden. Create a part of your garden where you grow edible plants and another where you can grow flowers.

Spread awareness: The major purpose of this year's theme is to start making changes from the household level. As an environment enthusiast, you can spread awareness on a small level by talking to children in your family, or at your office or in your locality.

Say no to public transport: If you are a public transport user, take a walk. Try cycling it's fun and a great way to exercise.

Publicise: Did something nice to protect the environment? Talk about it! Share pictures and posts on social media. Let people know what you plan to do and do it this World Environment Day.
