Mark your calendars for these upcoming, quarterly Sustainability Info Sessions.

Most people want to do their part to use our natural resources wisely, protect the environment, and energize the economy in a way that is equitable for all. But unless you’ve spent hours researching how you may not have a good list of things you can do personally! Fortunately, CSLDallas’ Sustainability Circle has done the research and is willing to share it. Whether you’re a novice or a pro, these sessions will reenergize you!

Join us for these 30-minute sessions that will be overflowing with an abundance of things you can do now, in the short-term, and in the long-term future. You’ll get tips, ideas, and plenty of resources so you can learn more about each topic if you choose.

These 30-minute hybrid sessions will take place at CSLDallas and online from 11:45 a.m to 12:15 p.m. on the Sundays below immediately after the Sunday Service in the Stem Room OR via Zoom.

All the sessions will follow these principles:

No shaming, no blaming — You get to decide which new activities are right for you and which aren’t! No one will tell you that your choices are wrong.

Intentionality – Corporations and the advertising industry have turned us into a nation of consumers. Take your power back by setting your intentions!

Practice makes perfect – The more you do, the more you’ll want to do. Small incremental changes over time lead to big, positive changes in life and in our world.

Social comparisons – Researchers have found that the most effective thing you can do to spark behavior changes by people in your community is to model sustainable behavior!

Reduce Your Plastics Use: Here’s How
We’ve all heard about the Great Pacific Garbage Patch and seen heartbreaking stories about the marine life that is being extinguished by our discarded plastics. But how can you reduce the number of plastics you use and buy? Join us to discover how the Sustainability Circle members have reduced their plastic use and see the alternatives they are using. You won’t have to deprive yourself of anything, and you’ll learn to be more intentional about the products you use.
