Lake Ella Clean Up

Saturday, September 30, 9:00 - 11:00 a.m.

Let’s keep Lake Ella beautiful and make it a safer place for wildlife. Bring the family and join our Creation Care group as we remove trash from the shores of Lake Ella on Love Your Neighbor Day. Kids love this activity! Experience has taught us that gloves, tongs, nets, and hand gel make the job much easier, so please bring them if you have them. Dress for the heat, wear sunscreen, and shoes that can get wet if you plan to work near the lake. A refreshment station will be provided. Meet in Sanders Hall at 9:00 a.m. Please RSVP on the Facebook Event and contact Patty Bailey at pcraig64@comcast.net with any questions.

 

Calling all Gardeners

As we head in to the fall, it is a great time to join our Mosaic Garden Green Team. We have three plantings a year, and maintain and harvest our garden thanks to helpers who Adopt-A-Week. All of our harvest is donated to those in need. We love our volunteers and no gardening experience is needed! Email Jessie Perry with any questions and to be added to our contact list at perry386@msn.com.

 

September Eco-Tip

Think Outside the Bottle

If you fill a plastic water bottle 1/4 of the way full with oil, you will see how much oil it takes to make a disposable water bottle. The numbers are staggering--over 100 million plastic bottles are used worldwide every day--and only 1 in 5 are recycled! That means millions head to the landfill and our oceans every day. The water inside is often no better than tap water, so kick the bottle water habit by installing a water filter on your faucet or refrigerator and switch to a reusable water bottle. You’ll save money, since to get the recommended eight glasses of water a day only costs about $.49 per year in tap water, compared to about $1,400 in bottled water. Visit www.banthebottle.net.
