Volunteers encouraged fellow Sacramentans to help take care of the planet on World Environment Day.
Sacramento, California, June 12, 2016 (Newswire.com) - In recognition of World Environment Day, volunteers from the Sacramento Chapter of The Way to Happiness Foundation organized an information booth to promote the precept “Safeguard and Improve your Environment.”
Held June 5th each year World Environment Day (WED) is the United Nations day for encouraging worldwide awareness and action for the protection of our environment. Since its adoption by the United Nation in 1974, World Environment Day has grown to become a global platform for public outreach that is widely celebrated in over 100 countries.
The Way to Happiness Foundation chose the precept “Help Take Care of the Planet” as their WED message. This is one of the principles of The Way to Happiness, a nonreligious moral code based entirely on common sense
“We want to create a better world,” said the Sacramento Foundation director, adding that the booklet, penned by author and humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard, addresses cultural problems in a society in need of help.
Mr. Hubbard wrote, "There are many things one can do to help take care of the planet. They begin with the idea that one should. They progress with suggesting to others they should.” And by bringing the booklet to the attention of those attending a local festival, that was exactly what these volunteers did.
The Church of Scientology and its members are proud to share the tools for happier living contained in The Way to Happiness with all who seek to make the world a better place. The campaign to distribute the book has been embraced by more than 257,000 groups and individuals, with some 115 million copies given out in 186 nations.
