DO ONE THING
Greendale Community Church's environmental group is called Do One Thing or D.O.T. for short. This group is committed to teaching the philosophy that little things add up and if we can only "do one thing" we can make a difference in our world. We must all do something about climate change and turn love into action.
Love Your Neighbor
Care for the Children
Protect God's Creation.

How to PROTECT, RESTORE, & SHARE in God's creation:
START A GARDEN INDOORS AND OUT
Start a garden in your own backyard or share the work with your community by creating a neighborhood garden. Do you have space in your church’s yard, at a vacant lot, or in a nearby park? Gardening is good for creation and saves you money. If you do not have space outdoors, you can grow veggies or herbs in pots in your place of residence. Indoor plants will produce oxygen to improve your indoor air quality.
- Buy unpackaged fresh fruits and vegetables
- Shop in the bulk food section of the grocery store
- Bring reusable containers fro your bulk food buys:
- Investing in some produce bags to transport fresh foods:
- Avoid prepared foods
- Bring your own bags for your overall shopping needs:
- Reuse plastic grocery store containers for organizing drawers or other things in your home.
OBSERVING EARTH DAY
The Urban Ecology Center is looking for volunteers to Celebrate Earth Week, April 17-24, by participating in small group projects at one of their three locations (Riverside Park, the Menomonee River Valley, and Washington Park). Founded in 1990, the Center's mission is to "foster ecological understanding as inspiration for change, neighborhood by neighborhood. The center provides outdoor science education for urban youth while protecting and using public natural areas, making them safe, accessible and vibrant." For more information on volunteer opportunities and the Center's many programs, check out their website at https://urbanecologycenter.org/
