Rotary People in Action

 

Even while in isolation, our local Rotary Clubs continue to serve the community.

 

Collecting Tags from your loaves of bread can make a difference!

These pesky little pieces of plastic usually go into landfill and because of their small size are particularly dangerous to wildlife. They are made of high impact polystyrene (type 6 plastic) which is denser than many other types of plastic, making them compact. Because of their small size, our recycler in Robe can skip the shredding stage of his process, going straight to melting and extruding the plastic. Also, unlike most other plastic waste, bread tags are usually clean.

 

All bread tags collected in Australia are currently being recycled locally. Bread tags are not turned into wheelchairs. The recyclers make a donation to us for the tags and these donations fund the wheelchairs.

 

Anyone can collect at home, work, school etc. All you need to do is get a jar and throw your tags in, or print off some of our labels and signs to collect at work or school. Also, think of asking places where lots of bread and rolls are used such as your local café, child care centre, nursing home, hospital or school canteen. When it suits you, contact us or drop your accumulated bread tags off at one of our collection points.

Are You Up To the Challenge?

A very simple way that all Rotarians can help raise our public image is to always wear your Rotary Lapel Pin. (And yes, your old blue and gold pin is still ok to use!)

The PI Coordinator team issue you a challenge—to wear your pin each day for 30 days. Why not start on 1st August and plan to wear it everyday for the whole month!

Female members can opt to wear earrings in lieu of the pin, if preferred.

The belief is that if you wear it to 30 days straight, you will continue to wear it every day.
