Rotary Mid Isle Joins Plastic Free July Campaign | SOUALIGA NEWSDAY

SINT MAARTEN (PHILIPSBURG) – The members of the Rotary Club of Sint Maarten – Mid Isle have joined the challenge for Plastic Free July! 

Plastic Free July is a global movement that helps millions of people be a part of the solution to plastic pollution. By following the three R’s – Reduce, Reuse and Recycle you can help create a more sustainable future for our planet. 

There are many ways to reduce your plastic usage by: Using bar soap instead of liquid soaps, instead of using plastic decorations use plastic free options, and use reusable storage containers instead of cling wrap to name a few. 

The Rotarians of the Club have been busy showing the community how they do the three R’s!

  • President Grace recycling her plastics at Meadowland
  • Rotarian Reena reuses mushroom containers to store her fresh fruits
  • Past President Wayne reduces his plastic usage by using a reusable water bottle
  • Past President Anjali reuses plastic containers (such as, mushroom, ice cream, strawberry and yoghurt) for planting. And she also uses water bottles as a water can for her plants, by putting holes in the water bottle caps 
  • Plastic waste is dangerous to the environment and can also be fatal to the animals who mistaken it for food. By doing your part, no matter how small – will make a great difference in the long run! 

    The Rotary Club of Sint Maarten – Mid Isle will be meeting Virtually for the remaining Tuesdays of this month. Contact us for more information at: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
