H.E.A.T. celebrated Earth day with a concert. The Environmental committee had 14 musicians perform for a total of 10 hours in the LBJ Amphitheater, ranging from rock to rap to folk music. Along with music there were at least 12 Art & Eco vendors including Bobcat Blend, Foxy Flight (feather jewelry), KTSW, Andrea Villalobos (dream catchers), H.E.A.T.’s Recycled Art & Pot Sale, Mother Nature face painting, and several local vendors with beautiful hand-made jewelry and unique paintings. Everyone brought great energy and the musicians relayed positive messages in their music. The decorations were sustainable too! Painted & manipulated plastic bottles hung from the trees and were placed on the patios with tea light candles in them. There was also a sea of generic plastic bottles to bring visual awareness of plastic consumption in the U.S. Water droplet shaped signs hanging from the trees had water and plastic waste facts written on them to add to the awareness and decor. There was also bubbles and tye dye everywhere, including a large tye dyed banner with the title, “Message in a Bottle” on top. People could go up to it and sign their name on it to support the idea of banning single-use water bottles campus-wide. Special thank you to everyone who came out and showed their support!
