The Environmental Taskforce of the Unitarian Universalists for Social Justice has issued an Educational Information piece on the Pros and Cons of GMO Foods.  You can pick up a copy of this informational piece from the table in the Castle lobby, or access it at the UUSJ Website: http://www.uusforsocialjustice.org/Environment.htm  

Green Sanctuary’s Motion to become a subcommittee of the BUC Social Action Committee was approved at the November 2016 Congregational Meeting. We will no longer function as an affiliated group. We will however, continue to sponsor environmental events, and to contribute to BUC’s sustainable efforts, e.g., providing direct trade Equal Exchange Coffee for Sunday Coffee Hour, and bees wax candles for the Sanctuary.
 
We intend to continue to collect Household Electronics and Hazardous Waste at BUC in October each year; in addition there will be other collections for hazardous household items (no electronics) in other neighborhoods throughout the year.
