New Recycling Opportunity at UUFA—-Put Your Lithium Ion Batteries in the Bin by the Front Door.

More info, submitted by Roger Wilkins: Affordable stationary electric storage is the Next Critical Step in the Transition Off Fossil Fuels. You can assist in this crucial step by supporting the local RePower Second Life Lithium Ion Battery Program. Bring your spent battery packs from portable computers, power tools, medical devices, etc. and deposit them in the collection bin just inside the entry to the UU hall.

The RePower Program is an integrated, full-life-cycle Lithium Ion Batteries (LIBs) usage system in which the costs of collection and end-of-life recycling are covered by a Second Life Battery utilization program, which creates a valuable product from second life LIBs. It involves building a community-based collection system and organizing a community enterprise network of worker cooperatives to process the battery packs into viable consumer products. By producing and selling sufficient quantity of Repower products, the program will finance the whole process of collecting, reusing and recycling LIBs. The program will scale the approach by replicating the organization of cooperative networks throughout the Appalachian region.

To learn more about the RePower Program view the short video (90 seconds) created by ARECC & UUFA member Alexa Ross. The video can be found on YouTube at: https://youtu.be/RkEA4xET1NE.” Or contact the Appalachian Renewable Energy Consumer Cooperative (ARECC) at cooperative.culture@gmail.com.

This Year’s Unitarian Universalist Association Common Read  Susan W. and Andy R. want to invite others to join us for a reading group on “An Indigenous Peoples’ History of the United States” which is the UUA Common Read for 2019-2020. With 400 years of interaction between native populations and the European settlers/colonizers to explore, we hope this book will give us a better understanding of the full scope of history on this continent. Details TBD, but we will probably meet three times starting in January 2020 so we can tackle the book in sections. If you’d like to join us (even if you can’t commit to reading the whole book, you’re still very welcome!) please contact Susan at suusanw.uu@gmail.com so we can keep in touch for scheduling, etc.  You can purchase the $16 book here.

FUTURE SUNDAYS & EVENTS – Subject to change—your ideas welcome. If you have an idea for a service, but don’t want to plan all the readings and music, we’ll do that planning for you!  The next programming committee meeting is online via Zoom on Friday, December 20th at 6pm. All welcome to participate. To participate, download Zoom and ask us for the Zoom invitation in advance. – Katie, Brian, Susan & Wenda.
