The Rotary Club of Salmaniya oranagised a month long awareness campaign of plastics pollution called “Green July”.
- The first stage was RCS members taking photos of themselves using reusable water bottles, reusable masks and any other reusable or sustainable alternative materials and posting on their social media account and hashtagging #GreenJulyRCS.
- The Second stage was RCS members collecting their plastic bottles during the Eid holidays (21st – 23rd July) rather than disposing of them. This is to demonstrate the amount of waste is produced in one holiday alone.
- Stage three is to drop the plastic bottles to the Bahrain Association for Parents and Friends of the Disabled who will in-turn sell them to a recycling facility and use the money to buy specialised wheelchairs for extreme cases of disabilities.
