Temple Beth Emeth and St. Clare’s Episcopal Church are collaborating to fight climate change, and we invite you to engage with us for a series of programs designed to amplify the message that by taking action together, right now, we can ensure a better future for all.
Take the Plastics Pledge
Join us in pledging to reduce the use of single-use plastics: click here! Please email Jennifer Wolf if you’re participating in the Plastics Pledge!
Take an Inventory
Climate Action starts with awareness of how we can have an impact for positive change. From June 20 – 26, take an inventory of all the single use plastic that enters your home, make note of how it is used, and consider alternatives. Register your ideas and be automatically entered into a raffle for fun prizes designed to reduce the amount of plastic in and around us every day! Download or print the forms at www.saintclareschurch.org/inventory.
