A REQUEST FROM THE ENVIRONMENTAL ACTION COMMITTEE - Stop Using Bottled Water during Lent between now and April 20 and beyond. EAC has placed signs at drinking fountains and at restrooms around the church urging folks to "Stop Using Bottled Water" and use tap water. One 16.9-ounce bottle of water requires 1.5 gallons of tap water.
- Only 14% of plastic water bottles are recycled in the US.
- Some plastics in the ocean will not break down in the lifetimes off the grandchildren of the people who threw them away.
The EAC is suggesting that savings be donated to the following three organizations that are involved in water security projects:
• Water.org (920 Main Street, Suite 1800, KC, MO, 64105) (www.water.org).
• Thawake Village (Kenya) Well Project (Heartland Presbytery, 3210 Michigan Avenue, Suite 200, KC, MO 64109.
• One Great Hour of Sharing (using PCUSA Easter Offering envelopes).
