Upper New York Area churches are encouraged to think about the environment when planning their Palm Sunday services.
The purchase of Eco-Palms is being encouraged by United Methodist Committee on Relief. Eco-Palms are raised and harvested in a way that is kind to the environment and fair to the people who cultivate them.
Eco-Palms can be ordered now through March 8, if paying by check, or March 14 if using a credit card. Visit http://www.ecopalms.org to order palms or to learn more.
