UUFC Compostable Utensils and Cups Update

The Environmental Action Council has learned that the supposedly-compostable utensils and cups bought to use in memorial services CANNOT be deposited in Republic’s organic waste carts. Food waste and pizza boxes and plain white paper napkins and paper towels are okay, along with yard waste. For the meantime, we need to NOT use these items, which will be put in storage until they are acceptable to use. The plastic, glass and ceramics cups and plates, and our usual utensils, are easy to handle in our very quick and efficient washing process and should be used for memorial services, action lunches, and other events.

 

Help A Neighbor Get Solar Power

Is your roof shaded so that solar collectors are not practical? Help someone else who wants a solar collector but does not have enough income to claim the Oregon tax credit. You give the householder $5,400 and receive from the State of Oregon $6,000 in tax credits spread over the next 4 years. Help the climate, help a householder of very modest means! For more information, contact Seeds for the Sol at juliewa@comcast.net. This is a way you can help personally. The climate justice committee and the investment committee are looking at other ways to assist Seeds for the Sol in their program to get solar collectors on Corvallis residences.
