THE DISTRICT PRESERVE PLANET EARTH COMMITTEE
To raise the awareness about environmental protection and sustainable living style among Rotary family, PPE committee organises below major activities:
- Green Rotary Club recognition
- Environmental preservation voluntary services (e.g. tree planting, beach cleaning)
- Forum or workshop focuses on the latest sustainability hot topics (e.g. sustainable seafood workshop)
- Fellowship events (e.g. green cooking competition)
- Monthly column on DG E-newsletter
We hope all Rotarians put “Sustainability” on checklist in your event preparation. The priority should always be “Reduce”, “Reuse” and “Recycle” the last. Ask yourself:
- Can I cut the unnecessary formality and replace with greener item (e.g. Never serve bottle water and encourage BYOB; distribute e-version of publication only)
- Can I reuse the event decoration? (e.g. Don’t print event date on banner and reuse in the future)
- Can I estimate the food and beverage quota more accurately and reduce food waste?
Last but not the least: Say NO to plastic!
Our targets & objectives in RY 2020 – 21:
- To raise the awareness about environmental protection among Rotary
- To promote sustainable living style among Rotary
- To prioritise the importance of “sustainability” in Rotary activities
- To bring the message of living a green live from Rotary to your family, friends and workplace
