Covenant Presbyterian Church in Lubbock, Texas has been awarded the Earthcare Congregation Certificate by the Presbyterian Church USA. It received this recognition because of its sustainable building and landscaping practices. The church has a rainwater harvesting system that provides water to a bioswale and irrigates native trees and plants that require no further watering. When the church expanded its plant, it used recycled materials everywhere–wall coverings, floor coverings, and counters . The restrooms feature dual flush toilets and automatic faucets and soap dispensers. The new nursery and Sunday School classrooms have motion sensor light switches. The church office uses recycled paper for everything and recycles all waste paper. The church has water dispensers that replace bottled water, and is planning, when the epidemic is over, to transition from single use paper and plastic to reusable dishes and cutlery.
