Green Flamingos – Eco-Justice Challenge for July

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 pack a waste free lunch!  Every year, Americans throw away enough paper and plastic cups, forks, and spoons to circle the equator 300 times.

Tis the season for picnics and lunches on-the-go.  It’s so easy to fill up your lunchbox or cooler with ziplock bags, disposable utensils, and other items that will end up in the trash.  Instead, challenge yourself to use reusable containers, utensils, and water bottles. You may have a few extra dishes to wash, but you’ll keep lots of unneeded trash out of a landfill.
