‘Message in a Bottle’ update: Recycle, reuse, reclaim … in about 40 years

We told you previously about UW-Green Bay’s “Message in a Bottle” campaign, which is bringing a fun time-capsule element to environmental awareness on campus. Sustainability leaders this fall collected messages in plastic soda and water bottles, designed to be used as fillers in new planters on the IS rooftop. The project brings awareness to the need for recycling — bottles in landfills won’t decay for a staggering 450 years — and also offered students, faculty and staff the chance to leave a message for the UW-Green Bay of tomorrow. The bottles were placed as filler in two large planters this week, and won’t be unearthed for about 40 years. We’ve got an update and cool new photos, click here.
