Do Green Practices Matter?

You Decide!

  • Recycling one aluminum can saves enough energy to run a 100 watt light bulb for 20 hours, a computer for 3 hours, and a TV for 2 hours. (Environmental Protection Agency)
  • Reusing a water bottle also makes a big difference. 3000 reusable water bottles were distributed at General Assembly (GA) 2012. If each bottle is used just twice, they save enough water to make 10,000 cups of tea.
  • By focusing on increasing compost and recycling at GA, Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) has reduced waste sufficient to fill 1.5 garbage trucks.

For more on the benefits of green practices at GA read our Annual Greening Case Studies.
