Have you had a chance to check out the Green Challenge Vine at the Chapel?
This vine made of recycled materials is an installation in progress. It will grow and
evolve over the course of year, until Easter 2013, as members and visitors of the
Chapel participate in the Green Team Challenge.
The Chapel’s Green Team has outlined ways ULC members can lessen their burden on the Earth and its resources by providing a list of earth-friendly changes they can make in their lives. The challenges include tasks such as walking to work instead of driving, drying clothes on a clothesline instead of using the dryer, using a compost bin, and getting a Home Energy audit. You may already be doing a lot of these things, but there are certain to be some new challenges that you can incorporate into your life.
A leaf for each challenge completed will be added to the vine to represent the collective progress we are making to help preserve the Earth.
We hope the vine will grow so fast that it eventually covers the Chapel wall with its leaves. And, we hope that this year-long Green Challenge will shine a light on how we all can be better stewards of God’s Creation.
Update your accomplishments in the Green Challenge directly on the spreadsheet online or find a Green Team member at the Chapel on Sundays and talk to them about the tasks you completed.
