Efforts towards environmental sustainability at our church have been taken up by our new Seventh Principle Group of the Grounds Committee and by a group of congregants exploring the possibility of Green Sanctuary accreditation. Our church belongs to Michigan Interfaith Power and Light (MIPL), and several of our members attend this interfaith group’s conferences each year.

In May 2018, UU Lansing sponsored a Solar Energy Talk featuring people, mostly from Meridian Township, who have installed residential solar power systems.

As we are able, the church continues to make improvements to our building and grounds that help us honor the interconnected web of life around us through reduced energy consumption and growing native plants that support local pollinators.
