Create a voluntary carbon tax for your congregation as a whole, to support sustainability projects
Establish a program for congregation members to calculate and combine their voluntary taxes or tithes. Invest the funds in your congregation’s energy efficiency, clean energy projects, or community sustainability projects. Possible ways include:
Visit Voluntary Carbon Tax to learn more about carbon taxing, access tools for calculating carbon footprints, estimating tax amounts, and suggestions for where to donate the funds.
Consider establishing a program like this one by Mount Toby Friends Meeting, a Quaker meeting in Leverett, MA, for your members to calculate and combine their voluntary taxes.
