Have fun saving the earth, one small change at a time!
Let’s see how much the North Toronto United Churches can do together for the environment, while having a bit of fun. To help get us started, the Green Committees of the North Toronto Cluster of United Churches have developed a new game: EARTH DAY BINGO!
The object of the game is for each person in your family to do as many of the activities on the Bingo card as they can between Easter (April 4, 2021) and Earth Day (Thursday, April 22, 2021). Then, on Friday, April 23, 2021, report your family’s activities to your congregation’s Green Committee (Peter Wilkins for ESG) by 5:00 pm.
Everyone Gets A Card
Everyone in your family gets to complete their own Earth Day Bingo card. Click here to download the Bingo Card.
Every square of the Earth Day Bingo card has internet links to a website that can help you complete your activities – just click on the underlined words!
Keep Track of All the Squares Each Person Covers
Try to cover each square by completing that activity between April 4, 2021 and April 22, 2021. When you complete your card, count everything you already do, as well as the new activities that you try out. See how many squares each member of your family can cover on their card!
Come up with your own new habit to help reduce your impact on the environment in order to cover the Free Square in the centre of the card. There’s a terrific link to some great ideas on that square.
Report Your Family’s Accomplishments
Keep track of the squares that each family member has covered on their Earth Day Bingo Card for reporting your family’s accomplishments back to your Green Team. It’s all on the honour system.
Report your family’s achievements to your congregation’s Green Committee by 5:00 p.m. on Friday April 23, 2021. We’ll provide a link to a form that’s easy for everyone to fill in.
Let’s See How Much We Can Do for Our Planet – God’s Creation!
The total for each of the activities as completed by all members of the North Toronto Cluster United Churches will be celebrated in church in the following week.
