4455542742_e720f0ee60_b

The Watsonville Buddhist Temple realizes our responsibility in combating climate change and it’s effects on our environment.  Understanding that as a Sangha we can learn, teach and share with each other practices that will help sustain and preserve our environment we will endeavor to acknowledge our responsibility and our participation in the destruction of our world.

At the same time we will endeavor to implement practices at our temple to mitigate the impact on our environment.  To this end we pledge to:

  • Lessen the use of plastics in our activities and events
  • Practice recycling of all products used at our events
  • Study the impact of our temple on the environment and work to improve our practices.
  • Look at alternative and sustainable resources for our temple.
