UCSB Zero Waste Committee
Happy Week 10 everyone! We hope that your studying has been going well. During this period of intense studying, maybe you’ve been drinking a lot of tea. Did you know that most single-use teabags actually aren’t compostable? There’s a percentage of the teabag that’s actually plastic to ensure that your teabag doesn’t just dissolve while you’re steeping it in hot water. That means that the teabag has to go to landfill :(. In case you’re a tea drinker and wondering what to use besides a traditional teabag, they actually sell reusable tea strainers/tea balls that you can fill with loose leaf tea. You can use the tea ball endlessly and compost the tea leaves after making a nice cup of tea. If you have a tea-drinking friend that’s looking for a quick zero waste swap, tag them in the comments and let them know about tea strainers! 🍵

Living History Project
The very first Women of Color Conference was held at the Multicultural Center. It was organized by Akanke, an African-American women’s support group, Hillel, La Familia de Colores, M.U.J.E.R., S.C.O.R.E., and Womxn’s Commission. The day consisted of workshops, lectures, group discussions, performances, and it ended with a screening of “Daughters of the Dust” with an appearance from the filmmaker, Julie Dash. The conference is still held at UCSB thanks to AS Womxn’s Commission.

UCSB Associated Students Office of the President
Since Chancellor Yang is only “strongly recommending” finals be given remotely, some professors of smaller classes are still being allowed to give in-person finals (as they are within new social distancing guidelines). If you have health or safety concerns and you are not being accommodated, please fill out this form so we can relay these concerns to the Chancellor’s office and do our best to advocate for all students in this tough time.
Hello Gauchos! This is the official response to the Chancellor’s remote instructions from the Associated Students Executive Officers 2019-2020. We hope you are taking care of yourself during this time, and we will be present to support and help the student body. For more information about each office you can refer to the following links:
