This Friday from 11-2 Green Oxford’s working group Take Back the Tap will be facilitating a taste test in the Farmer School of Business. Test takers will compare the tastes of bottled water to tap water, to determine whether or not bottled water is actually worth the cost. All are welcome to attend and participate in the test. It will only take a moment.
The following event will be held Monday, October 22, from 10 to 4 at the Hub:
Green Oxford will be hosting Oceana’s Photo Petition Drive in an effort to raise awareness and increase support for offshore wind energy. Stop by and get your photo taken with a sign that says:
“Ban offshore drilling, bring offshore wind!”
The petitions will then be sent to Oceana, the largest international nonprofit solely dedicated to wind energy. The petitions will eventually be sent to Congress in an effort to show the growing support for replacing offshore drilling with offshore wind turbines.
Stop by to show support for clean, renewable energy!!
