350.org Updates and T2T reminders
Please remember to note on your calendars that Trash to Treasure (T2T) will be closed on Oct 24th so that we may all participate in the 350 International Day of Climate of ACTION.
T2T is part of the local grassroots planning group and we have challenged individual's and groups to become CLIMATE CAPTAINS, and to bring 10 people to the event, making sure they are in the 350 logo tees, and bearing a sign representing their group. This is not only a good way to support climate protection initiatives, it is also a great way to promote your group pr business as part of a sustainable future. It's not too late to get involved.
T2T has formed a Climate Captain group as well and our goal is to get 35 people under the "T2T SUPPORTS 350 Climate Protection" banner. If you don't have time to form a group, consider joining our group and bringing your family and friends along. We feel that this is gathering will be especially empowering to kids, since we will have to pass the baton to them eventually to continue the democratic work of make the voice of the people heard by leaders.
Our event is designed to be positive, uplifting and responsibly vocal. Eight cities and Broward County have issued Proclamations honoring the day and encouraging citizen involvement. When the Town of Davie presented the Proclamation the other night, the council stood and led a standing ovation acknowledging the importance of the day and the work to be done---together.
All the details for the local event to be held at Museum of Discovery and Science from 10 -1pm are on our website. Pdf's of posters and flyers are also there, if you can print them out and continue spreading the word, that would be great.
Contact us via the website if you want to join the T2T Climate Captain group. We will have a 2nd work party night on Friday, Oct 16th ( back by popular demand) to continue silk screening tees and making signs. Join us!
