Taking Action across the Full Lifecycle of Plastic

‘Think Global, Act Local’

  • You can start today: use less plastic, refuse single use plastics and pick up a piece of plastic waste everyday.. And tell your family, friends, colleagues and neighbours, why you do it. Then you have given the example and you started creating awareness!
  • Take club actions: clean-ups in your local community, engage schools & sport clubs, ask shops & restaurants not to use single-use plastics anymore, and organize zero-waste events & meetings. Your club can also adopt a river, lake, bay or beach and ensure it remains clean.
  • Support projects worldwide to accelerate solutions by working together with companies, organizations and authorities. Increase the impact of projects and include awareness and waste management. Expand our reach outside Rotary, increase participation of Rotary, Rotaract and Interact clubs and members.

What can you do yourself (DIY)?

  • Stop using single-use plastics and try to buy less plastic products
  • Apps can support you to use less plastic: download the ‘My Little Plastic Footprint’ app or the ‘Beat the Microbead’ app
  • Clean your environment, by using the Litterati app you can upload photos of pollution to alert producers
  • Have fun and win a price by using the Plastic Bingo app
  • Download the Plastic Bingo app and clean your environment
  • Create awareness with family and friends: e.g. tell everybody to use 2 plastic pieces less per day. By doing that we use almost 9 Billion pieces of plastic less per year! (2 x 10 family, friends x 1,2 million Rotarians x 365 )
