Soda Machines in Theo
In light of Dr. Kearns' address in chapel today about our stewardship of the Earth - particularly her point about the number of soda and water bottles we use and then throw away - I wonder if we might consider removing the soda machine in the lower level of the Theological School?
At the very least, we could take it upon ourselves as a discipline to simply abstain from using the machine. A sustained decrease in revenue will lead the owner to move it to a more profitable location.
I admire the grand examples highlighted in her presentation (solar churches, geothermal seminary buildings, etc), but as Dr. Kearns points out, it's the daily commitments we make that will have the greatest impact on reducing our total level of pollution.
