About Our Chapter

The Eastern NA Regional Chapter covers a large area from Eastern Canada to the Caribbean. We are a lively group of more than 230 members from 62 Rotary Districts!

We formed ESRAG to empower members of the Rotary family worldwide to take actions to sustain our environment, particularly to stabilize our climate. How can ESRAG help you? ESRAG provides an organizing point and informational resources to share information with clubs and communities about sustainable practices and the global humanitarian crisis of climate change.

Our action model:

Identify environmental leaders within the Rotary world, assist them in initiating environmental service projects that are meaningful to THEM, help where we can, and acknowledge and publicize their awesome work.

Did you know that RAG membership is “open to Rotarians, their family members as well as participants and alumni of all Rotary and Foundation programs?” Please join if you are not yet a member and invite your Rotary colleagues, too!

We look forward to collaborating with you to bring Rotary’s ‘Service Above Self’ ethic to solving environmental problems.

Our chapter participates in several large scale projects:

  • International Beach Cleanup Day
  • Susquehanna River Cleanup
  • Great Lakes Watership Cleanup
  • Trex Film Plastic Recycling Challenge
