About the Green Sanctuary Committee

The UUCJ congregation voted to seek Green Sanctuary Accreditation on June 14, 2009 after a 3-year effort of working together to meet UUA Green Sanctuary requirements. We were officially accredited by UUA on July 28, 2009. Our function is to ensure that we follow our Green Sanctuary commitments to UUA and our Seventh Principle. We have supported that vision by creating and managing Arlington Community Garden (providing food to food pantries), maintaining a recycling program; conducting ethical and healthy eating classes; planning annual Earth Day services; offering labyrinth events, maintaining and renovating the UUCJ building with green practices; supporting the kitchen with its “no disposables” policy; and developing an earth-friendly landscape policy.
