According to Plastic Oceans UK, we manufacture over 300 million tonnes of plastic every single year. That is the equivalent to the weight of the entire adult population of the planet.

On Saturday 8th June, Rotary clubs and groups across Great Britain and Ireland are being encouraged to take action and host local events as part of a Rotary GBI mass beach and river clean day.

Steve Martin, District Governor for North and Mid Wales, South Lancashire, Merseyside and Cheshire, explained why Rotary is perfectly placed to make a difference.

“Many clubs are becoming more and more aware of the plastic that is ending up in our seas and rivers, causing so much damage to our environment and wildlife.

“We know that lots of clubs do community litter picks and beach clean exercises and they are a really good way of sharing useful time together.

“My thoughts, and the thoughts of my fellow District Governors, is why don’t we do something together?

“If we can mobilise clubs on one day and get them all to arrange a beach or river clean or a litter pick in their communities it will show people Rotary’s commitment to the environment.

“It is also a great opportunity to get our RotaKids, Interact and Rotaract clubs involved as we know that young people are incredibly passionate about this cause.

“Clubs are already contacting me and telling me of other environmental groups they are teaming up with and they are recruiting members of their community to help.”
