We went litter picking with the Green Party group in Kenilworth. Although Soroptimists are a non-political organisation we took the opportunity to contribute to SDG 15. Life on land can only be healthy when waste is properly managed. All together we collected over 15 bags of waste, mostly plastic and drinks cans. Amongst the more unusual items were a workman’s fluorescent jacket, a ‘for sale’ sign and a bike pump. There was also a whole bag of waste dog poo bags – shame on you dog walkers 🙁
We also took the opportunity to spread the word about what we as Soroptimists do to help women and children.
Goal 15: Protect, restore and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, and halt and reverse land degradation and halt biodiversity loss
