University of Alaska Fairbanks Chilling Paper Towel Waste with TCFT Stickers

I've never been to Alaska, though I very much want to go. There's something really attractive about the wild beauty of the last true frontier of the US.

In the meantime, though, it seems that I can take some pride in the fact that a whole passel of These Come From Trees stickers will be making their way up to the University of Alaska Fairbanks.

UAF already has a large Go Green Initiative, complete with its own website. When the head of dining services at the University saw a TCFT sticker up in a bathroom in his local coffee shop (posted, no doubt, by a guerrilla TCFT participant!), he ended up back on this blog, where he was able to read up on the the long (and growing!) list of Universities (and businesses, and K-12 schools!) deploying TCFT stickers.

He sent an email to the head of facilities for the whole University, and just like that, UAF will be posting TCFT stickers on all of their paper towel dispensers, throughout the University. How cool is that?

Talk about a perfect case study of how "It only takes one"--a single sticker in the right place, in front of the right person can totally blow things wide open!

When I finally make it up to Alaska, it'll make me happy to know that TCFT is already thriving up there in the great white north.

I love this campaign. I am Baltimore's Vegan Examiner and I just wrote an article on natural/animal-free cleaning methods and made sure to include this link into my article! I see these stickers all over Towson University's campus and think they are awesome. Good Job!

Hello,

My name is Bill Hawthorne, and I represent maacenter.org, a leading web resource for asbestos exposure and mesothelioma cancer information. Our organization is dedicated to increasing awareness of the terrible health consequences of asbestos exposure through the distribution of the best informational materials and public outreach efforts.

I found your site through a search and decided to contact you because of its high environmental and green presence which is extremely important in our movement. Your viewers are extremely savvy and motivated. The promotion of how buildings should now be built using sustainable green products to avoid asbestos and mesothelioma as well as the awareness of past buildings and preventative steps in avoiding asbestos exposure are extremely important. My goal is to get a resource link on your site/blog or even to provide a guest posting to be placed.

I look forward to hearing from you. Please feel free to check out our website at www.maacenter.org. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Please contact me back at bhawthorne@maacenter.org

I wish UCLA would do the same. I've seen a few stray stickers here and there but no big campus-wide effort, even though they do all kinds of advertising about how they're "going green." Here are some of our HUGE strides...we used to leave the computers on overnight in all the computer labs, now they're turned off! Why didn't anyone think of that before?

...That's pretty much it.

I just bought some stickers and enlisted my boyfriend to help stick them in the men's rooms. I'm pretty sure I'll end up buying more and going on my own crusade to every bathroom on campus to stick them up. WAY too many times I've seen girls rip out five feet of paper towel, only to use the delicate tip. A forest dies every time UCLA students go to the bathroom.

Thanks for making these stickers.

I visited the great and beautiful state of Alaska back in 1999 and it was a pleasure to see the vast natural beauty you have up there. I only wish it didnt get so cold in winter otherwise Id seriously consider moving there. Great place to visit.

Awful to hear this! I work on recycled produce labels, and these things are so disheartening to me as this waste is far greater than the total amount I've saved over the years :(
