At San Marcos Lutheran Church, we take pride in caring for God’s creation as a congregation.
In the summer of 2016, we installed solar panels on the roof to offset our summertime A/C bills and to be better stewards of God’s creation. We used Sungevity and they were easy to work with. Mention San Marcos Lutheran Church referred you to Sungevity using this link. You’ll get a discount on your installation and the Church will get a referral bonus. http://www.sungevity.com/san_marcos_lutheran_church
During our refreshment time after the Church service, we use real coffee cups instead of Styrofoam or paper. When we have an event that is too big for washing the dishes by hand, we use paper plates instead of styrofoam. Moving to reusable and recyclable items is one way we can reduce our impact on the earth.
Fair Trade Coffee
Fair Trade Coffee not only pays the farmers a living wage but it is grown with eco-friendly methods which do not deplete the soil.
Drought water restrictions
During the drought, we replanted many areas with drought tolerant plants, increased our use of moisture retaining mulch and installed water saving fixtures.
The outside play area of the preschool has won several awards for its use of outside play space. This interactive area stimulates the preschoolers and enriches their day at preschool.
