Hello everyone! We here at TBTT hope that your weekend has been fantastic! Another drab Monday is near, but on the bright side, that means another TBTT meeting! Our meeting tomorrow, October 19th, will be at 8:30 in 151 Willard. We have exciting news to share about progress of the campaign and the upcoming documentary! We might be new, but we stand to really make an impact!
In the meantime, it’s no secret that water bottling companies like Nestle suck dry the drought-plagued regions like California. This led some to ponder: what if water bottles were required to be labeled with graphic warnings about the dangers posed to the environment? After all, the dangers of cigarettes are printed on the packages, so why not also display the dangers of bottled water? Do you think this would deter people from purchasing disposable bottles?
Hello TBTTers! We’ve entered October, and whether that means you’ve already had a few midterms or are about to have a few, we wish you the best of luck!
The next general body meeting will be tomorrow, Monday, October 5th, at 8:30 pm in 105 Willard. We’re super excited to see you again, and hey, bring a friend along too! We’ll be talking about HUB-Tabling, the Council of Sustainable Leaders, some great collab ideas with other groups, and more.
In the meantime, did you know that there are giant floating garbage patches in our oceans? Seriously, check this out. The currents of the ocean carry floating trash like water bottles and styrofoam out into the middle of the ocean, and they don’t get washed back to shore. NASA created a short video showing a computer animation of how and where the trash accumulates.
