The excess of plastic waste is a global problem. That requires global attention and action. Here we collect the actions, initiatives of organizations that are each in their own way to contribute to the solution of the problem.

If you want to contact one of these organizations as a Rotary club, please let us know. This is to prevent them from being flooded with all kinds of initiatives and questions. Contact us at mailto: endplasticsoup@gmail.com.
