USSB Members Take Action to Fight Climate Change!

April 30, 2024

It’s important that we all do as much as we can to reduce our carbon footprint and fight the effects of climate change. Here are some steps we hope our whole congregation will take:

1. Go to and fill out your household profile. There are options for both renters and homeowners, and this is quick and easy to do.

2. Look at the actions shown on the website that will reduce carbon emissions and decide which ones you will commit to doing.

3. Let Lorraine Woodman or Robert Warner know that you have filled out the profile, as well as what actions you have committed to.

4. Let Lorraine or Robert know how much carbon is being removed from the atmosphere as a result of these actions. This will be shown on the website, along with how much money you can save.

5. When you complete your profile and commit to actions, you will be entered into a drawing for various prizes—you will get one entry for filling out the profile and one for each action you commit to. You can contact Lorraine via email, phone call, text, or at the Earth Advocate table the first three Sundays in May. You can also contact us if you have any questions or need help.

6. We will post the actions people commit to on the bulletin board In Parish Hall for all to see and will also post a “thermometer” showing how much carbon we have committed to removing.

7. This event will end on May 26, when we will announce our results and have a drawing to select the winners!

Thanks for helping to live our shared values.

Several members of the Unitarian Society concerned for the climate crisis and environmental sustainability have formed the USSB Earth Advocates committee. We hope that you will participate with us to help us fulfill our mission and goals.

The mission of the USSB Earth Advocates is to educate, inspire, and take actions toward ending the climate emergency and promoting ecological sustainability. Our goals are to empower individuals within our congregation, change facilities and practices as needed, and advocate throughout the Santa Barbara community.
