Green Coffee Hour

The Green Team host "Green Coffee Hour" periodically throughout the year. They are also reviewing our coffee hour procedures and updating them to include green tips that you can use, either as a guest or as a host for coffee hour. Here are a few things we each can do to reduce waste going to landfill and cut costs on supplies purchased for coffee hour:

  • Use your own coffee mug, or a china cup, at church
  • Use a spoon to stir coffee rather than a plastic stirrer
  • Use a cloth napkin rather than a paper one
  • Use a re-usable plastic kid’s cup or paper cup rather than a disposable plastic one
  • Put food scraps into the compost rather than the trash
  • Rinse foil and plastic food packaging and recycle them

If you’d like to share your ideas, be a part of FUMCAH’s Green Team, or help with Green Coffee Hour, please contact Christina Crusius at
