Caring for Creation
Congratulations to all at Epping United Reformed Church who have completed the first stage of Eco-church and have been awarded a Bronze Award.
The official certificate has been received and will in due course a wooden plaque (made out of recycled pews) will take pride of place in the Church Foyer.
The church community had already doing some of the things required such as fair-trade, recycling and not using disposables. Some of the extra things that led to the Bronze Award included:
- Eco services and eco focused junior church and toddler group
- Making the garden more environmentally friendly with feeding stations, bug hotels, bee and bird baths
- Providing recycling stations for ink cartridges, stamps, mobile phones
- Using recycled paper and environmentally friendly cleaning products
- Promoting being environmentally friendly in newsletters and on the church premises
- Minimising resource use
- Calculating the carbon footprint of the church
We had been planning other initiatives such as having an eco-holiday club and having the junior church build a bug hotel and hopefully these will happen in the future.
