Care for the Environment

The Seventh Principle of Unitarian Universalism calls us to affirm and promote “respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.”

UUU Operations:  The UUU has taken several small steps toward greening our church and operations.  From green cleaning products to cloth napkins, eliminating paper waste and improving our building’s energy efficiency, our congregation believes deeply that the Earth deserves environmental justice. If you have ideas on how we can continue to improve, we want to hear them!

Ethical Eating: Our 2011 UUA Statement of Conscience calls Unitarian Universalists to strive to choose foods that minimize harm and are protective of the environment, consumers, farmers, and all those involved in food production and distribution.  Many of our UUU events feature delicious homemade vegetarian fare, and you’ll see our members as regulars at the local farmers’ markets.

Global Warming/Climate Change: Our 2006 UUA Statement of Conscience calls Unitarian Universalists to adopt practices that will reverse global warming/climate change, and to do so in ways that are just and equitable.
