EHC Green Team
EHC’s Environmental Policy:
The EHC is committed to minimising the impact of our Synagogue on the environment by seeking to reduce our Carbon Footprint.
To achieve this aim EHC has formed a ‘Green Team’ to fulfill the maxim of ‘Caring for the Environment’.
Over the past year and a half the Team’s targets have been to reduce the Shul’s use of energy, to encourage recycling, discourage food wastage, improve the garden space and to keep the community updated and informed about the Team’s work. EHC is now a member of Eco Synagogue and has already achieved an Eco Synagogue Bronze Award for efforts to reduce, reuse and recycle. We are now working towards a Silver Award.
To date we have differentiated, labelled bins plus recycling information in the kitchen, pooled our dry food resources to minimise duplication and waste, informed and updated members in our weekly Newsletter, the ‘Shavuon’, unstuck open windows to conserve heat, changed light bulbs to LED, purchased environmentally friendly cleaning products, sought professional advice on energy conservation and insulation and are creating a wildlife friendly garden for members to enjoy.
Any member who is interested is welcome to join the EHC Green Team. We meet once a month on Zoom.
