Faith and Being Green
From signing petitions to participating in environmental activism and getting energy audits done, Ohio Interfaith Power and Light (OhIPL) has it all.
This remarkable organization harmoniously brings together many different faiths to pursue one common goal: good stewardship of the earth. Its slogan is "A religious response to climate change" but its open door policy makes it more like a multi-religious response to climate change.
Ohio Interfaith Power and Light (OhIPL) is the Ohio chapter of The Regeneration Project's national Interfaith Power and Light network.
Made up of a growing community of dedicated youth and adult groups from various religious institutions, these volunteers and staff help Ohio faith communities conserve energy, become more energy efficient, and promote renewable energy in response to climate change.
Founded in 2007, OhIPL has already worked with over 100 Ohio congregations to become better stewards of God's creation through energy audits and other energy saving programs. Congregations can become Covenant members by filling in the covenant form on the OhIPL brochure.
Regardless of a person's religious beliefs or spiritual inclinations, this organization gives anyone who is interested to learn more about how to save money and protect the environment a dynamic place to seek or to contribute help.
This organization not only promotes eco-friendly awareness, but it proves that different religions and beliefs can work peacefully and productively together to accomplish positive changes.
