The Green Team Challenge

As part of our church’s efforts to reduce our environmental footprint, we are encouraging members and friends of our church to join our church community group in the Fremont Green Challenge.

Forty percent of emissions come from just 5 common household activities (transportation, electricity, food, heat, waste) that we all do every day, so household actions can really add up to a huge impact. From May through August 2021, our church is participating in its own Green Challenge. May is Sign-Up month. June is Transportation month. July is Heat/Electricity month. August is Food/Waste month.

The Fremont Green Challenge platform is easy to use and provides practical action items. You don’t need to be a Fremont resident to join. Use the link https://fremontgreenchallenge.org/community-group/join/8256.

Please consider joining the Niles Community Church community group anytime, even after our 2021 Summer Challenge is over.
