The Value of Thinking Small: Inspiration and tips for Eco-Conscious Living

During this waste-conscious service, we will consider how our UU principles intersect with environmental issues; watch a short film about a local child-led conservation project; hear about how one Islander is charging ahead to reduce her family’s carbon footprint; and glean ideas and inspiration about how we can each reduce waste to better care for our planet.  In the name of waste-consciousness, we invite you to bring your own coffee mug to the service so that you are able to enjoy refreshments AND contribute to the health of our planet.
