Faith in Action: Power and Light

As people around the world observe the 44th annual Earth Day, a new Harris poll (commissioned by Ricoh Americas Corporation) finds Americans are increasingly in favor of "greener" workplaces.  75% of 900 workers surveyed said they would insist on changes if they saw wasteful practices in action, and 67% say they would report their employer if they thought their practices were harming the environment.  One group, Interfaith Power and Light has been working to mobilize a religious response to global warming, and promote energy conservation, energy efficiency and renewable energy.  Connecticut Interfaith Power and Light, one of its 39 affiliates, offers a practical, real-world way for clergy and faith leaders to practice conservation.  The group offers a class on how to make houses of worship – often older buildings with poor insulation – more energy efficient.
