Important Club Info and Amazing Opportunities to Pump Up Your Resume!

Hello everyone!

     I just wanted to get all of the club members on the same page by giving you all an update about the club this semester.  There is also two awesome new opportunities that might interest you, so read below for that!  

So, in the club meetings this semester, we have decided to focus on three main goals to work together towards: 
1.) Getting an urban farm on campus
2.) Banning plastic water bottles at CSULB (specifically targeting the Beach bottles)
3.) Banning plastic bags at all stores on campus.  
During the meetings we have been forming groups, coming up with goals and tasks, and combining all of our resources to start taking action.  If you are unable to make it to the meetings, but still want to help out, send us an email - we will need all the help we can get!  I know several of you are used to meetings that are more relaxed, where you can just sit back and listen, - don't worry we will have guest speakers and time for that, still.  Just imagine how awesome it will be by the end of all our hard work to say that we got an urban farm on campus and eliminated plastic bags and water bottles, too!  If you have any suggestions for these groups or any resources you want to share with the club
