Now here's a way to get attention to water bottle waste

Some students from Green Reps at SUNY Cortland had a brilliant idea. String up 1,800 bottles on three trees on their campus to draw attention to energy use and waste on and from their campus.

"Three trees in front of Neubig Hall on the SUNY Cortland campus took on a different look Wednesday, courtesy of students trying to make a point about bottled water.

The Green Reps, students who advocate for colleges to find ways to cut down energy use and trash in residence halls, tied plastic water bottles in the trees’ lower branches using hemp twine."
