Subject:   [september17discuss] Re: Sustainability Committee, CALL TO OTHER COMMITTEES!

The only reason I am having the meeting there was due to frustrations

around setting a meeting time for the first meeting and finding there

was, what seemed to be, an unscheduled teach-in start there at the

same time I made my first call out to people to hold the meeting there

(under the red tripod) and I didnt know where to get the most accurate

updates about when and where meetings were. i am more informed now but

thanks for raising that concern and we can talk about it at the

meeting. As for single-use plastics, recycling and resource management

is an issue of concern and will def be an item we discuss. Come to the

meeting! :)
