Eat Greens: Ethical Eating Impacts Climate Crisis


September 15 11am Worship Leader: Rev. Kathryn Hawbaker Worship Associate: Andrew Clovis
Category: Sunday Services

Did you know that meat requires 11 times more fossil fuel to process than fruits and vegetables? And it takes 96 times more water to produce meat than wheat? In 2011 the General Assembly of the UUA passed a Statement of Conscience on Ethical Eating. It provided faith communities direct means to engage some of the most challenging social issues of our time: hunger and malnutrition, free and fair trade, labor and exploitation, animal rights and human responsibilities, neocolonialism and globalization, environmental degradation and climate change. How far have we come in our own choices and behavior? What are we doing next? • BRIDGES Class begins today with Lucy Filipow • Green Sanctuary Committee Meeting in the Parlor, 12:30 p.m. • Sierra Club presentation hosted by Green Sanctuary, 7:00 p.m. in the Social Hall
