Green Team Spring Ideas

andrea, October 30, 2018

Is your Green Team starting to plan for the Spring? Below are some initiatives other Green Teams have taken!

Create a native plants garden at your place of worship. Join the Sowing Seeds of Stewardship Facebook group for more information and resources.

Have a coffee talk after your service? Try eliminating plastic plates, cups, and silverware one week! Create a sign about why you’re doing this to educate members of your congregation.

Ask a religious leader to lead a prayer about creation care during a service! We suggest this prayer about climate action.

Does your place of worship have a storm drain on the property? If so, you can request your drains to be labeled with a “No Dumping” label. Fairfax County is partnering with places of worship to provide this labeling free of charge. More information about the program can be found here. Email Ashley.Palmer@fairfaxcounty.gov to receive an application.

Work with a youth group or craft group to sew reusable bags for members of your congregation and pass them out after a service!

Want more ideas or resources for your Green Team? FACS will come to your Green Team meeting to help brainstorm, give resources, and support your work! If you’re interested email jackie@faithforclimate.org.
