A top priority for Rotary is growing and diversifying our membership to make sure we reflect the communities we serve and are inclusive of all cultures, experiences, and identities. We're creating an organization that is more open and inclusive, fair to all, builds goodwill, and benefits our communities. This is Rotary International's diversity, equity, and inclusion statement: 

"As a global network that strives to build a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change, Rotary values diversity and celebrates the contributions of people of all backgrounds, regardless of their age, ethnicity, race, color, abilities, religion, socioeconomic status, culture, sex, sexual orientation, and gender identity. Rotary will cultivate a diverse, equitable, and inclusive culture in which people from underrepresented groups have greater opportunities to participate as members and leaders."

Making diversity, equity, and inclusion a priority is everyone's responsibility.

Eco Tip of the Month

BUYING LOCAL IS IMPORTANT FOR OUR ENVIRONMENT AND COMMUNITY

Eating local reduces your carbon footprint. When your food or the product doesn’t travel long distances, you’re promoting better air quality and reducing pollution. A shorter food supply chain means more transparency with your farmer and fresher goods. By shorting the distribution chain, the Carbon emissions decrease.

Buying from a local farmer also reduces the waste and use of plastic and packaging. Buying local means more money stays within your community. Every dollar spent generates twice as much income for the local economy. These small steps help enrich our social community, the local economy, and our environment. Let’s buy more local.

This TIP was facilitated by the Rotary Club of Kaka’ako Eco. Meeting on Tuesdays, 6:00 PM, 660 Ala Moana Blvd, #220A Email: ecorotarykakaako@gmail.com
