THE SOLUTION - ACTION & RESPONSIBILITY:
Over 30 people joined us for our first Action, we're expecting even stronger turnout for this one. We will march at the headquarters of the International Bottled Water Association (IBWA), hand out flyers at King Street Metro, and then celebrate with a costume party at a nearby bar or restaurant. There will be awards and prizes!
TAWF's goal is to eliminate all plastic waste from our watersheds. Our members have been leading stream cleanups and working to protect our streams and parks for years, and now we're addressing this issue at the source. Our actions are intended to provoke, inspire, and educate on trash-related issues, in peaceful, creative, legal ways.
We are often told that this is a hopeless task, that corporate interests, public apathy, and legislative complexity make this an impossibility. Nevertheless we persist! Join us - we're stronger together! Cities, states and countries are far ahead of Virginia in their work to reduce trash, so we know this can be done!
Here's the Meetup page for our Fall Day of Action.
We are grateful for the support and participation of our partners and co-sponsors! And we'd love to add your organization to our growing list!
SUMMON YOUR USEFUL INDIGNATION AND JOIN US!
If you believe this, you'll believe anything - Join us!
