The United Church of Canada has pledged to reduce its carbon emissions by 80% by 2050. You are part of this!
Plus there is a huge savings for you, as energy costs have a huge impact on a community of faith's budget and also on their environmental footprint.
How to save on energy?
Just start thinking about this! Simply by keeping this top of mind will start to have you doing things differently. The easiest thing to do is to start with your behaviours, but there are lots of opportunities to evaluate where you have high energy costs and actively investing in reducing these.

How to reduce your environmental footprint?
Often the savings tips are also the way to reduce your environmental footprint. However there are specific grant programs out there to help you do this with utility rebates, energy efficiency grants, and solar panel & geothermal programs.
With the pledge of reducing carbon emissions by 80% by 2050, a new grant program has been created to support communities of faith in doing their part. Learn more here...
