End Plastic Soup

The End Plastic Soup campaign started in 2018 in the Rotary Clubs of Amsterdam and has spread to Rotary Clubs throughout the World, including the UK. In 2021 End Plastic Soup will become a Rotary Action Group making it truly International!  Throughout the World there are numerous projects where Rotary is leading or partnering with other organisations.

 

Projects around the World include river and lake clean ups from Mexico to Holland, Philippines to South Africa Russia to Italy. We are currently establishing our own action group in the Thames Valley. We hope to start looking at our own River Thames, identifying the source of pollution and initially initiating a cleanup of the many tributaries of the Thames.

End Plastic Soup is a Rotary initiative to solve the global plastic problem by taking action with the 1.2 million Rotarians around the World. By End Plastic Soup we include the visible bottles and other large detritus but also the micro plastics which have an alarming, albeit unseen impact on our daily lives. We use micro plastics in so many products from face cream, detergents, tea bags to fertilizers. We create micro plastics with tyre wear and washing clothes.
