Environmental Concerns

John Woolman - 1772
The produce of the earth is a gift from our gracious creator to the inhabitants, and to impoverish the earth now to support outward greatness appears to be an injury to the succeeding age.

Plymouth Monthly Meeting is acutely aware that our and our societies way of life has impoverished the earth for generations to come. In response to this fact Plymouth came to unity on the following minute.

Plymouth Monthly Meeting's Green Minute   - Sixth Month 16, 2019
Plymouth Monthly Meeting is in unity to, in a step by step process, stop its use of fossil fuels to generate the electricity it uses, to heat its water, to prepare its food, to heat its building, and to invest its funds. This commitment was made today, Sixth Month, 16, 2019, with the expectation that with prayerful discernment and Divine assistance, it will be completed in the next ten years. The implementation of this minute will require the work of the Property, House/Kitchen, Finance, and Trustee committees. It is requested that each of these committees prepare a plan for implementation of this minute for the areas of their responsibility.


This section of the website is under construction. Below will be sections addressing different aspects of Plymouth's Green Minute and other important environmental concerns.
