Saint Andrew Group
for Ecology (SAGE)
As members of Saint Andrew Christian Church, believing that the earth is God's and all life is sacred, it is with humility, awe, and wonder we seek ways to live in harmony with and as faithful stewards of God's creation.
"The Earth is God's and all that is in it, the world, and those who live in it; for God has founded it on the seas, and established it on the rivers."
A Point to Ponder – under THE SAGE TREE
Estimates have shown that over half of the energy in the U.S. is wasted due to inefficiencies. For most homeowners, that waste could total over $1,000 per year.
Resolutions that last way beyond 2014
You can easily learn how much you can save on energy bills by going to “Beyond the Bulb” energy calculator. The website www.beyondthebulb.org provides regional information about energy savings, conservation and energy efficiency improvements. Typically these include lighting, air and duct sealing, insulation, furnace efficiency and water conservation. Start at the website by answering a few questions about your home. The energy calculator will give you estimates of potential savings. The next step is to schedule an energy assessment with an approved, trained, regional energy analyst. A list of analysts and financing options for recommended improvements is available at www.beyondthebulb.org.
Street Clean Up
We will resume clean ups on our adopted stretch of 127th Street when construction is completed.
