UUCPA embraces eco-justice (or ecojustice) principles.

We offer an eco-justice class as one of our two Sunday school classes for middle-schoolers. We also conduct a one-week Eco-Justice summer camp.

Some class accomplishments include replacing plastic coffee stirrers with rice pasta stirrers for coffee hour, establishing composters (with worms!), installing rainwater tanks and using some of the rainwater to water gardens and flush toilets, planting gardens, baking cookies to support UU Service Committee fundraising, and generally creating awareness and community supporting eco-justice.

Some activities:

Calculating your carbon footprint
