Rotary International President Ian H.S. Riseley believes protecting the environment and curbing climate change are essential to Rotary’s goal of sustainable service. In July of 2017 The President challenged every Rotary club to make a difference by planting a tree for each of its members between the start of the Rotary year on 1 July and Earth Day on 22 April 2018. Trees remove carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases from the air, which slows global warming. Have you planted a tree this year???
