Dear friends of EndPlasticSoup

Many thanks to all the clubs from Uruguay to Miami, from Frankfurt to San Ingnacio to Marbella. What a great fourth EndPlasticSoup Action Day it was last Saturday June 5. We are so proud!!
Actions were organized all over the world by many Rotaryclubs and RotarActClubs to draw attention to this immense problem of plastic waste which we can only solve together.

More than thousand Rotarians and RotarActors and their friends and families collected many many kilos of waste.They did that while walking, biking, sailing and supping. There were beautiful artistic installations to show how much plastic an average household uses per year, symbolized by swans. Special activities for children were organized. Bingo was played with the PlasticBingo app, bottle-caps were collected and much more! Rotary and Rotaract got a lot of publicity. Showing in a special, inspiring and creative way that we are People of Action and that we as Rotary, Rotaract care about the environment.

 
Thank you all very much and keep up the good work!

Watch and enjoy  the many photos and videos

Next year the 5th EndPlasticSoup Action Day

Great invention for RIVER CLEANUP by RSC of San Ignacio Benque Viejo
Rotary Satellite Club of San Ignacio Benque Viejo in Belize hosted a river cleanup campaign. They cleaned the biobarrier at the entrance of Benque Viejo and collected a total of 105 bags of garbage. They also cleaned the creek at the entrance by the Matanza. In total, 107 garbage bags were collected. The Benque Viejo Town Council supported their efforts and collected the garbage bags right after the cleanup. Together we can achieve more! GREAT job!
