URJ West District Greening Committee Report

In the fall of 2009, the PSW Council formed a greening committee.  The committee agreed on goals to encourage congregations to increase participation in environmental practices related to areas such as energy use, purchasing, recycling, community gardens, food and composting, practices, environmental education curricula and other programs.  To help establish guidelines, the committee, in conjunction with the Religious Action Committee, created and distributed a survey to collect information from certain congregations already engaged in green practices.  With an initial response from thirty congregations, only four of which are from the West District, the committee is planning to distribute the survey to congregations within the district before creating guidelines.
