Water Bottles
What’s the deal?
• Over 80% of bottles are thrown away (but plastic bottles leak chemicals, endangering your health!) • They take 1,000 years to biodegrade • In the US alone the production: • Requires 17+ million barrels of oil (plus transport) • Produces 2.5+ million tons of carbon dioxide • Requires 3L of water to produce 1L bottled water

• Minimize production & transport cost • No extra water usage • Save money • Less trash

Unbelievable…

Original price = $25

Our price $15 pesos
(subsidized by NHS)

EARTH DAY: A CALL FOR CLIMATE

Climate change is happening...

So do your part to stop it.

Take the Bold Steps to Make Your Carbon Footprint Smaller

Vegetarian Day:
Thursday

Positive Effects of Reducing Meat Consumption: – Less demand for meat  less pollutants in atmosphere! – Sustainability – Better use of land/less damage done to arable land

Your veggie options:
• Meat (& protein)  • Beans • Nuts • Meat alternatives (I.e. soy burgers)

Carpool Day: FRIDAY

We’re not asking you to do this…just get a ride with 2 or more friends!

Why should you carpool?
(or use mass transit, of course!)

• By 2030 the number of cars in the world will increase by 50%
• According to Chevron, the world uses 2 barrels of oil for every 1 discovered • It took 125 years for the world to consume 1 trillion barrels of oil, the world will consume the next trillion in only 30

• Each gallon of gasoline burned creates 19 pounds of CO2
+ its cheaper & probably more enjoyable for YOU!

Haha…Here we go…

HAPPY EARTH DAY!
