EndPlasticSoup Action Day 2019

After the success of last year, the second edition of the EndPlasticSoup action day took place on June 1, 2019 It was thanks to all participating Rotaryclubs a big success. We took action with many clubs Rotaryclubs, Rotarians in Amsterdam, Europe and even overseas. Next year on June 6, 2020 we want to organize a few large, regional activities around rivers, lakes and coastline, where several clubs can participate.

We were present as steering group from 1 – 5 June at the Rotary Convention in Hamburg. And we demonstrated there that we need all Rotarians and Rotaryclubs to join EndPlasticSoup. By bringing the plastic waste problem to the attention of all 1.2 million Rotarians, we can get the wheel of change moving.
