Green Team

This Lenten season we invite you to take daily steps to permanently reduce your own carbon footprint. The following are examples to help you take a "carbon fast" during Lent:

 

  • Calculate your carbon footprint https://www.nature.org/en-us/get-involved/how-to-help/carbon-footprint-calculator/

  • Go plastic free (refuse single use, overpackaged items, straws)

  • Take less than 3 minute showers

  • Commit to meatless days (as many per week as possible)

  • Compost kitchen scraps

  • Incorporate car free days

  • Drive the speed limit

  • Buy conscientiously, (less, local, used)

  • Stop catalogue delivery/junk mail (sign up for catalog choice) https://www.catalogchoice.org/

  • Line dry clothes rather than use dryer

  • Eliminate air travel

  • Turn off all appliances and lights when not in use 

  • Join a group to advocate for climate change legislation

  • Plan to plant a tree

  • Feed the birds
