Green Sanctuary

The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Falmouth is concerned about environmental justice.

We are a UUA accredited Green Sanctuary congregation. This means we have made a commitment to make every aspect of congregational life as sustainable and environmentally responsible as possible.  Here is the original application to UUA that was submitted in May 2009:

UUFF Green Sanctuary Report May10 2009

UUFF is actively in the process of renewing our Green Sanctuary commitment.  This effort requires the participation of the fellowship.

UUFF’s Green Sanctuary Vision

Everyone at UUFF helps each other to live green as environmental stewards, based on the 7th UU Principle: Respect for the interdependent web of life: Individually, as a community, and with other groups on the Cape and around the planet.

  • We proactively seek out ways to preserve our environment and the natural beauty and wonder of our planet and all living things around us.
  • We learn and educate each other for green awareness, knowledge, and empowerment.
  • We live green in everything we do at UUFF and in all parts of our lives.
  • We serve as green citizen-scientists, seeking and trying out new possibilities and actions to sustain our planet
  • We collaborate with other green organizations for greater impact.
  • We are Green Sanctuary!
