We are honored to announce that we are joining ERIC Social Project “End Plastic Now” as Gaziantep İpekyolu Rotaract Club.

Pollution of the plastic waste is growing worldwide. We would like to raise awareness regarding the recycling of the plastics that affect the future of our world & life, less plastic production and prevention of micro plastic growth.

Our project consists of 3 parts.

As the 1st part, on 24 January 2019, our member Rtc. Ilgın Özemir (Service Projects Committee Chair) informed us about plastic recycle, decrease usage of plastic, what the global manners should be like and how plastic affects human beings & animals adversely. Next,brochures were distributed to inform about all kinds of recycle and how we should dispose waste.

For the 2nd part of the project, we will be distributing 100% organic cloth bags to prevent usage of plastic bags.

And as the 3rd part, we will be recycling blue caps of water bottles which have been collected by our club members for the past 2 years. Blue plastic caps that we have collected so far weigh around 15 kilograms.
