BLAB back in session!

Hey BLABers,

I hope everyone is settling in to the new quarter and that all of your new year's resolutions involved building better businesses for a sustainable future... :) Though there has not been an official meeting, BLAB business and activities have been evolving, including participating in a fundraiser selling the fantastic Chico Bags (featured by BLAB at the sustainability fair this past fall), with the Green Club, the Recycling Club, Net Impact (mba network), and the Environmental Studies Institute.

The sale works like a school fundraiser (i.e. students get an order form and collect money... then we turn in bulk order to Chico Bag... they ship them... and we distribute them to people who placed their orders). Each club's members work to gather orders and money by a specific date in order to submit a bulk order. When we receive the bags, each individual will be responsible for distributing them to the people who ordered them. Each club would get funds for the amount of bags they sell.
Bags sell for $5. We pay $2.50, so each sale nets $2.50 for the club.

Check out this site for more info! http://chicobag.com/Fundraise.html

The logistics will be announced as they develop, but for the meanwhile, email me if you are interested in helping sell these great bags and we can get order forms into your hands in the next few weeks! Order forms will also be available for pick-up at our next meeting, yet to be determined.

Questions? Comments? Really want a meeting to happen ASAP because you have some really great ideas or want to take over the club next year?

Sustainability Day Poster Party Saturday Noon!

Hey BLABers,

Just to keep you all on your toes:

This week we are going to have a slight change in pace, and rather than the usual would-be Wednesday meeting, we will be holding a Poster Making Party THIS SATURDAY the 20th at NOON at 745 Locust St (by Safeway) instead. We will be making posters and fliers for Sustainability Day (which is Wednesday the 24th from 2-4pm), discussing our presentation and plan of action, and overall finalizing our plans for Sustainability Day.

RSVP if you can, and maybe I'll get some snacks...

**Bring your clean plastic bags and we will recycle!**

On a side note, a few BLABers are attending BODY WORLDS 2 and the Three Pound Gem at the San Jose Tech Center this Wednesday at 7 (usual meeting time) to take advantage of the FREE NIGHT WITH SCU ID! If anyone would like to go and would like a ride, let me know, there is room in the car for a few more! FREE ADMISSION TO THE TECH MUSUEM!!!
Check out more about BODY WORLDS atwww.thetech.org and www.bodyworlds.

Peace and Good Wishes--Let's all think Karma people!
Hope to see you all Saturday at Noon!

Hey BLABers!
Hope everyone is feelin groovy as week four creeps through--good luck to all those who are having midterms!

This week we will be having our BLAB meeting at 6:00 in KENNEDY 108 this THURSDAY the 11th.

We will be discussing our exact plans for sustainability day and splitting up jobs to prepare--Right now the plan is to sell our KIVA tshirts and use a laptop to show students our KIVA page and those we donate to/how to donate, as well as create an expo about recycling/reusing plastic bags including where to recycle, where to get reusable bags, what businesses are reusing the bags, etc. We would also like to promote on campus plastic bag recycling/reusable bags/biodegradable plastic. We will need to make posters, fact/resource fliers, etc.

Look forward to seeing you all there and hoping that we get some new faces on this Thursday date!
Welcome all, even if you've yet to make a meeting!

Hey BLABers! Hope everyone had a fantastic weekend and aren't too stressed yet!

We will be having our second meeting this week on Wednesday in Kennedy 108 at 7pm. We will be talking more about projects that we want to be doing this semester, discussing our work with KIVA and t-shirt sales, and more--so please come! We're trying to put some of our ideas into action and we need everyones help! The Sustainability Fair is coming up at the end of October and I think BLAB could do some sort of demonstration or event that week to help gain awareness/members.

Note: For those of you who are unable to make it to Wednesday meetings but still want to be involved, do not despair. You can keep updated by checking out our website http://blab-scu.blogspot.com/ AND WE WILL BE HOLDING MEETINGS ON THURSDAYS EVERY FEW WEEKS also, so as to try to get as many people involved as possible.
