Green Flamingos – Eco-Justice Challenge

Annette Helping Hand

College Park is committed to promoting and maintaining environmentally friendly practices in our church and community. We believe that environmental stewardship is a religious value and a moral responsibility

This month’s eco-justice challenge is to reduce our water usage. Water is a finite resource, and reducing our “water footprint” is necessary for a healthy planet. Consider this: about 6,800 gallons of water is required to grow a day’s food for a family of four. Think about ways in which you can reduce your water footprint this month. Take a shorter shower, don’t pre-wash dishes before the dishwasher, install a low-flush toilet in your home. Maybe you could even purchase or make a rain barrel so that you use the hose less often during these hot summer days. Check out http://waterfootprint.org for more information and ideas!
