Hey BLABers,

For those of you who didn't make it to Sustainability Day, you missed out! The afternoon was a success for BLAB, gaining new interested members and making contacts with other great Green, Sustainable businesses and organizations.

This week, we will be having our meeting Thursday Nov 1 at 5:00pm in Kennedy 109, to recap what we did on Sustainability day as well as begin to focus on our next project. Please come and add your suggestions! We want to make this next project great!

Enjoy Halloween but stay safe!

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.
