Hey all! We’re one week into Tapapalooza, and we could really use your help! If you haven’t already, text “I < 3 Tap!” to 69866, which will then count as a pledge for us in the competition. Taking the pledge means that you will try to use a reusable water bottle whenever possible instead of a disposable plastic water bottle. It will ask for your email, but don’t worry, it is only to verify that you are, in fact, associated with Penn State. In other words, you won’t be added to our listserv unless you contact us directly and want to be added!
Also, the heart is the “less than” sign and the number 3, not the heart on the emoji keyboard.
Happy Monday everyone! There will be a TBTT meeting tonight at 7:30 in 67 Willard. We will be discussing Tapapalooza, the month-long competition in universities across the country to gain the most pledges to Take Back the Tap! Oh, and that month starts TODAY! The winning university receives a grant to place more refilling stations on campus, so we really want to win!
Also, check out these edible water bottles (or water balls?). Seems like an awesome idea!
Happy Monday! Just think, only two more Mondays until Winter break! Better yet, no more Mondays until our documentary screening. That’s right, FLOW is this week: Thursday at 6:30 in 60 Willard! Please share our event page with your friends so they also have the chance to learn about the Global Water Crisis:https://www.facebook.com/events/567523046743434/573140556181683/
In the meantime, check out this article by the Guardian mapping out the world in terms of the availability and cleanliness of water sources. A lot of progress has been made in the past 15 years, but there is still a TON of room for improvement!
