EndPlasticSoup Western North America

EndPlasticSoup is the worldwide initiative for Rotary to solve and prevent the plastic pollution problem, supported by hundreds of Rotary, Rotaract and Interact Clubs and thousands of Rotarians in 48 countries on all continents The aim is to fight global plastic pollution with Rotary, Rotaract and Interact Clubs and solve the plastic pollution problem by 2050, in the waters, the air and in the soil. End-to-end across the lifecycle: Refuse, Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.

Our Approach: We believe that, jointly with our Alliances, Rotary can make a difference. Through our skills, experiences and network and our combined experience, we can accelerate solutions. We believe in the local approach: think Global, act Local.
Therefore, we have Ambassador and Supporter Clubs who represent us in their District.

We take action, support and initiate projects:

  • Awareness, Action & Alliances
  • Rotary, Rotaract, Interact together
  • End-to-end: Education, Rethink, Reduce, Reuse, Collect, Recover & Recycle
