Carbon Fast for Lent: A Greener Church

Holy Saturday and Easter Eve
“Could your church be greener? Talk to your church leaders. Tearfund can help — visit”

Today’s Carbon Fast question is a great activity for those who attend church. For those who don’t: what about work or school? What can we do to make our offices or campuses greener?

On a related note: I stayed at a Hyatt hotel a couple days this week and noticed they’ve implemented a greener policy about towels and bed linens. The hotel no longer changes these automatically every day. Instead, a card in the room asks guests to alert housekeeping or the front desk when they’re ready for new sheets and towels. This was a very large hotel — that’s a lot of energy and water savings by avoiding pro forma washing that isn’t really necessary.

Today’s mitzvah: How can you help your school, office, or church become greener?
