Green Your Spiritual Life: Places of Worship

Green your place of worship Most people who consider themselves at least somewhat spiritual, regardless of their religion or set of beliefs, have realized that caring for the earth is imperative to their spirituality. This week we’re sharing tips about how to align your inner life with your green life.

Tip #1: Green Your Place of Worship

The places where people pray, meditate, or simply stop to have moments of peace vary vastly – but you can make sure that your place of worship isn’t causing environmental damage. If you go to a church, temple, mosque, or other organized place, ask your congregation’s leaders to emplace green measures like reducing energy use, water use, and waste. You can even volunteer to head recycling efforts or organize carpools. If a corner of your home is your place, make sure that room is as planet-preserving as possible. If where you connect to the spiritual realm is outdoors, remember the “leave no trace” commandments.
