Environmental Sustainability

I was great to see so many Rotarians bringing their own mugs to the District Forum last Saturday.

Those that did will have noticed that they got more coffee for their £1 and had the satisfaction of knowing that they were reducing the amount of waste from the event.    We are now looking into getting some Rotary branded travel mugs produced so that you can promote Rotary as well as enjoy your coffee.

Club Environmental Sustainability Policy

It is a year since RIBI produced a Club Environmental Sustainability Policy which  contains some guidlines for us all.  Have any clubs in District 1200 adopted this?   The policy has deliberately been kept simple so that even the smallest of Clubs will not have any difficulty in achieving it.

We hear so much about environmental sustainability but what else can we actually do?

I have searched the RIBI site and have found some leaflets which might give some ideas which help to answer this question.
