Six ways to green your parish

Published July 3, 2007
  • Designate a ‘bike-to-church’ Sunday;
  • Repair leaks promptly. A leak of one drip per second wastes about 10,000 litres per year;
  • Post signs encouraging people to turn the lights out if they are the last ones to leave a room;
  • When making new purchases, be sure to buy Energy Star rated high-efficiency appliances;
  • Plant deciduous trees around the building to provide shade on hot days;
  • Rake leaves instead of using a leaf blower.
