A ‘Zee Wee’ Event

Oct 9th, 2014

Caring for God’s Creation & the Poor:  “Creation is a gift, it is the marvelous gift that God has given us, so that we will take care of it and harness it for the benefit of all, always with great respect and gratitude.” ~Pope Francis 

Stewardship Tip:  SEPTEMBERFEST ZEE WEE.  Our Parish recently had another successful SeptemberFest!  But did you know it was also a ZERO WASTE EVENT (or Zee Wee!)  The goal of a Zero Waste Event is to either compost or recycle everything possible, leaving less than 5% going to our city’s incinerator.  Most waste at any Annunciation-hosted Event is either compostable or recyclable: 1) COMPOSTABLE?  ALL of Annunciation’s disposable beverage cups, forks, spoons, knives and plates are compostable foodware.  (They sometimes look plastic but are made of corn.)  All food waste and soiled paper products are also compostable.  2) RECYCLABLE?  Glass & plastic bottles, aluminum, and other plastic containers and paper are recyclable. (Think of your Single-Stream Recycling at home) and 3) TRASH?  Candy wrappers, chip bags and plastic bags are for the trash.  Thank you to those of you who take the time to separate your trash at every Annunciation event and help make us a Zero Waste Parish.
