Eco Church Award Certificate Bronze- Epping United Reformed Church

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.
