EndPlasticSoup Ambition

In 2050 there is no more plastic soup in the oceans, seas and there is no more plastic waste in our lakes, rivers, parcs, woods and streets.

Rotary contributes to solve the plastic waste problem in the world

 

Take action – start today

You can start today. Use less plastic, use two pieces of plastic less a day and together with 1.2 million Rotarians (and family, friends) we will start reducing plastic waste! That’s easy! Or pick up one piece of plastic waste everyday from the street, beach, riverside so it wont’ end up in the lakes, seas and oceans. Tell your family, friends and colleagues about the problem  and join us: sign the EndPlasticSoup Petition here Become  a member of Rotary EndPlasticSoup and come into action on the Worldwide EndPlasticSoup Action Day, June 6, 2020. Like many Rotarians did last year!

Worldwide EndPlasticSoup Action Day 2018 here we give you an impression of that day and the presence at the International Rotary Convention 2019 @Hamburg. For full album go to the album page.

End Plastic Soup

Welcome to the #EClubDistretto2110
(Sicily and Malta) as a member of #rotary #endplasticsoup The Eclub is located between #Sicily 90 Rotaryclubs and #Malta 3 Rotaryclubs and they have Fellows from several parts of Sicily as well as USA and Germany. #SebastianoFazzi is the president of the club and architect He said: "since environmental Issues are very important to us and to #ValerioCimino - the DG for 2019 - we have started an internal discussion which resulted in a project called #Flavofish This is a very special fish eating plastic through the activation of “Flavobacterium” in plasticdisruption.

The first #Flavofish was installed at the coast of #Cefalú on the #ThyrrenianSea. We had realized the construction and the #RCCefalú support the installation on a very well frequented Club in the beach of Cefalú.

A second Flavofish will be placed on the coast of the city of #Catania on the Ionian sea. This is sponsored from the 13 Rotary Clubs of Catania Area, which recently gained a District Grant for its comprehensive activity on this topic with scholars. A third one – yet to be realized – will be located in the southern coast of the Island on the Mediterranea sea.

We are very pleased that you became with #EClubDistretto2110 a member of #EndPlasticSoup we hope many Rotaryclubs will follow your example, installing a #flavofish and become an #endplasticsoup member. We are looking forward to work together to solve this hugh problem!

End Plastic Soup

The circular student board of Highschool Huizermaat in Huizen, NL, presented their plans for plastic waste reduction at the EndPlasticSoup seminar in Huizen on 7th November. The students aged 13-17 were inspired by Tijmen Sissing, the Trashpacker, and by Rotary's initiative EndPlasticSoup.

#trashpackers #5000students #circular #sustainability #plasticpollution #plasticocean #cleanup #education #huizermaat #circuleerlingen #trashpackerYEAH WE'RE GETTING THERE! 😀🎉 Another 500 amazing students from the high school Huizermaat joined my talk about the plastic pollution - to be reminded why there is no time to WASTE!

This school is on the ball with their waste management. They even have a "Circuleerlingen Raad". A board of front running students who are working on the sustainable transition of their school 😎

4865 students: CHECK! ✔
135 students to go for my 5000-students-in-1-year-goal 🎯💪😎
