Greener St Peters


 

 


At St Peter’s we want to live more responsibly in God's world both as a church and individually. As a church we will be asking for more to be done to consider the environment by discussing local environmental initiatives with our councillor and MP.

The Greener theme for June is greener gardening. Do read the article in the June magazine. 

Tip: Make your own Whitefly and Greenfly Spray with a little bit of washing-up liquid in water in a sprayer (99p from Wilko). Keep those roses clear without nasty chemicals. Even better if your washing-up liquid is an eco-variety!



As the world faces the threat of global warming and we all examine our lifestyles to think about ways we can reduce our individual impacts on the planet, Lent offers us a chance to try something new. This might be:

  • Reducing your energy consumption by wearing an extra jumper and turning down your heating by one degree
  • Using your washing machine at 30 degrees for the week
  • Mend some clothes to avoid having to buy new ones
  • Buy a reusable coffee cup and take it out with you
