World Cleanup Day 18th September 2021

We invite you all to participate to World Cleanup Day and take action as a club in your own local community. Please make publicity via the local press and media and invite other volunteers outside Rotary to participate.

Send your pictures and measurements like number of volunteer, number of voluntary hours and collected waste in number of bags, truckloads or kilos to endplasticsoup@gmail.com. When your club does waste sorting or uses apps like the Litterati app send us number of collected products like: cans, bottles, wraps, fast food, cigarette butts, bags and packaging.

Of course your club can organize a competition using the Plastic Bingo app!

World Rivers Day and conference 26th September 2021

In the week before World Rivers Day a conference will take place regarding solutions to cleanup rivers and keep them clean. As we all know waterways like rivers not only bring lots of waste to our seas and oceans, the waste also pollutes our drinking water and endanger biodiversity. It is therefore important that Rotary takes the lead to accelerate solutions and policies to prevent and solve plastic pollution of rivers worldwide.

Please join the conference to learn more about advanced solutions and innovations for cleaning, detecting the source and recycling. The conference is supported by four Rotary Action Groups: WASHRAG, ESRAG, Rag for Peace, RAG for Community development, and two environmental projects: Clean Rivers of the World and EndPlasticSoup.
The first World Rivers Day at Rotary will hopefully inspire many clubs to start an action, adopt a river and/or start a project.
