Green In Our Hands Recycling Competition

We are in the third month of our Green in Our Hands Recycling Competition and thanks to the effort of Vice Chair IPP Annyee in promoting this competition, a further 4 clubs have signed up since the second month. There are a total of 41 clubs participating in the Competition and approximately around 60,000.00 Green$ points have been earned so far. The clubs will have until 15th April 2024 to earn Green$ points which will be used to redeem groceries such as rice and noodles. The winning club will get to choose the NGO to donate the groceries to. Gather your family and friends to join in the recycling to earn more Green$ points, redeem into groceries and donate to the needy! Of course, don’t forget to invite the rest of the Rotary family in – Rotaract, Interact, Junioract and RCC!
