Dia del Arbol - 15 de Junio

Tree Day, June 15th

Today, on June 15th, the world celebrates Tree Day. On this day, everyone is encouraged to plant a tree to help the environment. It may not be a heavily-publicized day in many parts of the world, but Costa Rica places a lot of value in this day, as they do for all environmental issues and events.

Events included:
-Hipermas (the Costa Rican Wal-mart) promoted a large recycling program, sponsored by Kimberly Clark.
-Numerous schools sent their students to local parks to plant trees.

So do your part, and plant a new tree! Happy Tree Day!
