It’s Not Easy Being Green
Being Green at Church
Being green isn’t always easy, but it’s part of our Cedars commitment to protecting the environment. Jane Martin spent the last several months working with Setup Teams on Sunday mornings to help contribute to this effort, and now is passing her guidance on to the rest of us.
Here is what we are doing to make it easier for everyone to do the green thing:
- Being consistent in placement of the bins each week
- Placing easy-to-scan signs above each bin
- Placing signs at eye level for easier reading
- Publishing Where It Goes List (see below)
It is important to put things in the correct bins. Here is where they go:
Recycle (clean items only):
Plastic juice/water bottles
Metal food or beverage cans
Milk or cream containers
Food waste, tea bags
Cedars (eco-tainer) coffee cups
Wooden stir sticks
Paper towels & napkins
Landfill (everything else)
Plastic straws & lids
Dirty Food containers
And–When in doubt, throw it out!
Thank you to Jane Martin for helping us get this far, and to the Setup Teams who will be helping us do the right thing each week!
