Look, there we are!
Our table was a huge hit at the Topsy Turvy Bus Fair last week! Lot’s of people signed our petition and took our survey! People who stopped by our table got to sample a few different kinds of cookies and taste some bruschetta with mozzarella and roasted tomato jam.
There were a number of other groups from campus there also, The Food Justice Alliance, The Office of Sustainability, GreenGW, Planet Forward, and Power Shift. DC Bread & Brew also stopped by with some delicious roasted vegetable wraps.
We enjoyed talking with the people from the Topsy Turvy Bus and hearing what they had to say about living sustainably and promoting change. The bus takes multiple trips across the country each year stopping at primarily Asian restaurants to ask for their used cooking oil to power the bus with. They also grow greens and compost in the bus. The bus travels making stops for engagements at schools, community centers, synagogues and churches, and universities to show people that it is possible to live sustainably, it just takes some behavior changes.
The bus was really cool and the people who live on it were really great to chat with. Shout out to the Jewish Farm School and Teva Learning Center for supporting such an endeavor and thank you for coming to GW!!
Huge thanks to GW Hillel and Tzedek for bringing the Topsy Turvy Bus to campus!
