One of St.Christophers pledges is to be an eco-church and we are participating in the A-Rocha Eco-Church Award scheme. This scheme suggests eco-initiatives, in a variety of areas, that church communities could introduce. ‘Success’ is measured by an award of bronze, silver, and ultimately gold status.
One initiative is to offer ‘eco-tips’ to our church community. We have researched the internet, put together a number of ideas, and hope you will find some of them to be thought-provoking, and useful!
Eco tip: Use the right Bulbs
Replace incandescent bulbs with energy-efficient, LED bulbs. In addition to the economic benefits, these are also eco-friendly alternatives. Incandescent lamps are manufactured from glass, tungsten, and aluminum. They burn out faster, which requires significantly more resources for their production, not to mention the negative impact on the environment and climate.
