In the Fall of 2011, we succeeded in earning our Green Sanctuary certification from the Unitarian Universalist Association. This means we have taken steps and committed ourselves:
- To build awareness of societal environmental issues among UU’s.
- To generate commitment for personal faith-based lifestyle changes.
- To motivate UU’s to community action on environmental issues.
- To build a connection between spiritual and environmental consciousness.
- To build awareness of and rectify environmental injustices.
- To implement environmentally friendly actions and policies within the church facility.
How to get involved:
This is ongoing and important work! We encourage you if you are interested in the community focused efforts to contact one of the project leads identified here on these pages. If you are interested in “greening” the building to join one of the two committees that support this ongoing work: Bag (Building and Grounds) and SPIFF (Space Planning, Improvement Facilities and Furnishings) The contact for BAG is Paul Kloth at firstname.lastname@example.org and the contact for SPIFF is Lynne Stanley at email@example.com
