The UMCG Stewardship Committee’s current focus is on Generosity of Spirit, Service, and Support. In accordance with United Methodist guidelines for stewardship, we are also emphasizing earth advocacy through “The Green Diary: Tips on Caring for God’s Earth.” You’ll find The Green Diary in our Messenger newsletter, on our website at www.genevaumc.org and on the United Methodist Church of Geneva Facebook page.
Here are some “plastistics” to wrap your mind around:
Alternatives not only reduce consumption of natural gas and oil (used to make the bags) but also lead to a cleaner landscape.
To recycle your light weight plastic bags, be aware: They should NOT go into your curbside recycling, as they easily slip through sorting conveyors and jam the gears. Instead, drop them off at a store that recycles them in bulk, such as Jewel, Wal-Mart, Meijer, or Target.
