Sending out an (eco) S.O.S.: UW-Green Bay’s Message in a Bottle drive

It’s the awesome, cost-saving eco campaign that already has us singing that catchy ditty from The Police — that’s right, UW-Green Bay’s ‘Message in a Bottle’ drive is here! All next week, campus community members will be invited to share their message, time-capsule style, in a plastic bottle (of the soda or water variety). These bottles will be used to help fill deep new planters as part of the student services roof remodel, thereby reducing the amount of soil purchased and calling attention to how slowly plastic breaks down (think in the four-to five-century range). There will be six collection locations around campus from Monday, Sept. 17 through Friday, Sept. 21. See our full news post for complete details — and think about what message you’d like to leave for the Phoenix of the future.
