UU Church of Santa Monica Goes Green

The Unitarian Universalist Community Church is the first church in Santa Monica to receive a Certificate of the Business Greening Program from Sustainable Works.

Susy Holyhead presented the document to Sandra Trutt, co-chair of the Green Committee and President Ron Crane at the Church's Board Meeting on June 10, 2008.

The Unitarian congregation was commended for its 27% waste reduction, 12% energy conservation and for changing its janitorial cleaning supplies and paper products to environmentally friendly alternatives.

The completion of this year long program is another step in the church's goal of becoming a "Green Sanctuary" with the Unitarian Universalist Association.

Greening Congregations, Religious Buildings and Operations

There is a significant movement going on in religious organizations of all creeds. Churches, Synagogues, and other buildings used for worship, education, recreation and socializing benefit significantly with energy retrofits, organic lawn care, energy-saving lights, daylighting, and clean, green chemicals that benefit the health of their members.

Vehicles, too can save organizations significantly when they are maintained effectively, and converted to alternative fuels or use fuel saving devices.

Behaviors can also be changed among staff, volunteers and members as they are encouraged and educated to carpool, turn off lights, recycle waste and reduce their reliance on climate change practices.

Sustainable Works is a non-profit organization with the City of Santa Monica, which promotes sustainable practices in the urban environment.
