Eco-Justice Council Action

Our Mission

Our vision is to work together to build a just and sustainable ecological ethic that informs our actions every day, based on: cooperation, mindfulness, simplicity, temperance and respect for nature. Join us in strengthening our parish’s commitment to environmental consciousness and working with the Episcopal Church in Connecticut, other faith communities and business and government advocates.

Seeding Backyard Composting

Our partner, Coalition for a Sustainable Cheshire (CSC) has launched a campaign to raise $$ and educate our community about the benefits and ease of backyard composting.

AND to distribute 120 FREE Earth Machine backyard compost bins and kitchen compost pails throughout Cheshire.

Your donations at every level are tax-free and will be matched $ for $ by a grant from Sustainable, CT.

Green Houses of Worship
The Council is working, with others at St. Peter’s, toward the certification of our parish as a “Green House of Worship.” This program is sponsored by the Interreligious Eco-Justice Network. We have completed Level 1 of the 3-tiered system. See the Green Houses of Worship requirements.

Branded Bags and Bottles
We have produced a new reusable, packable grocery tote bag just in time for the CT state-wide law restricting single-use plastic bags in retail stores. We distributed them FREE at the Cheshire Fall Festival. We also now have snazzy St. Peter’s blue stainless steel water bottles to replace all the plastic water bottles that end up on our streets and beaches. No need to buy water in plastic bottles ever again. Learn more about “what’s the problem with plastic bottles.”
