Worldwide EndPlasticSoup Action Day
The first Saturday of June is the EndPlasticSoup Action Day worldwide and this year it will be the 5th time that this Action Day takes place. This weekend coincides with the Rotary International Convention this year from June 4-8 in Houston, and with the UN World Environment Day.
Many clubs that participate in EndPlasticSoup go walking, rowing, SUPPing, planting trees or pricknicking to draw attention to the problem of plastic pollution on land, in the water and in the air with a clean-up campaign or a meeting. There are many ways to raise awareness about the plastic waste in our environment.
Take action with your club. Invite non-Rotary members as well, and draw attention to the (local) media. Bring your children and grandchildren, use our Plastic Bingo app, come up with a nice price yourself, bring a picnic basket and have a good time together. We also have a nice coloring page for the little ones that shows the difference between organic and inorganic waste.
If the first weekend of June doesn’t work out, you can of course organize an action at another time.
In the new club year we will start in September with an action week: from Saturday 17 September (world cleanup day) to Sunday 25 September (world river day). More information about this will follow in August.
