Welcome to the Environmental Committee

Next Virtual Environmental Committee Meeting: 
Feb 28, 2024 at 6 pm
Email Andrea for an invitation at:  Andrea Lacroix
 
We are committed to supporting our clubs in the creation and implementation of environmental projects both in our local communities and around the globe. Our committee members have multiple years of experience in environmentalism and some of them are members of ESRAG, the Environmental Sustainability Rotary Action Group. 
 
The District Environmental Committee is up and running and wants your involvement!  If your club has an environmental committee, let's talk and discuss what you are doing and how we can work together to take your projects further.
 
Water, plastics, and pollinators ... these are the issues Ipswich-Rowley Rotary is working on.
 
Ipswich-Rowley Rotary has a Global Grant focused on Water Conservation.  We have partnered with the Ipswich River Watershed and are seeing positive results.  I will be attending the ESRAG Projects Fair at the end of January to showcase this grant.
 
Is your club looking for a speaker?  Please contact me, Andrea LaCroix!  I have been making the rounds at many rotary clubs delivering a very informative talk on plastics and I am available to speak at your club.  There are giveaways involved so book me for an in-person presentation soon!
The month of May seems far away, but we will begin promoting ‘No Mow May’ in March.
 
Wishing you a happy and healthy New Year!
