CUCC SUSTAINABILITY COMMITTEE

PRESERVING GOD'S GREEN EARTH

As part of the efforts of the CUCC Sustainability Committee, we have established our church as a "Fair Trade Congregation," meaning that all coffee served at church events has been purchased from Fair Trade Certified Companies like Equal Exchange. The Committee also hosts Fair Trade Coffee and Chocolate Sales throughout the year. Additionally, we work hard to be as sustainable as possible in our day-to-day life at CUCC. We do our best to always use compostable or recyclable plates/cups/utensils at major church events and had solar panels installed on our main Sanctuary years ago to work toward cleaner energy consumption.

Hopeful Actions to Address Climate Change: A Bipartisan Solution

January 12 at 9:00 am in the Louise Roberts Room

...Feeling sad, angry, overwhelmed, paralyzed about what to do? Come hear about the steady work of Citizens' Climate Lobby (CCL)!
Penelope Mann and Rob Brown, co-leaders of the local CCL chapter, will talk about House Resolution 763, which places a fee on carbon at the source and gives the dividend directly to households. CCL helped Republicans and Democrats work together to craft this bill. Economists agree this is the simplest,fastest most effective action. 66% of American voters support a fee on carbon/ revenue to households and 75% of Republicans under age 40 are in support.

Committee Meeting, January 26

If you missed out on the Fair Trade Sale, we still have some items, just let us know what you are looking for and how many you want! We will let you know if it's in stock and when you can get it. Thank you for your support!

The Sustainability Committee is the sponsor of our Sunday “God's Garden Sharing Cart." If you have been growing a vegetable garden, or have an abundance of fruit from your own trees, feel free to bring some and share with your fellow church family or swap for other fruits and veggies you may not be growing. If you have no garden, no matter! Come and reap the benefits of homegrown produce. All are welcome to give or take! Look for the cart outside the front doors of the Narthex on Sunday mornings.

If you are interested in using the cart for your group or committee, email sustainability@claremontucc.org!
