Don’t sign that petition! The plastics industry has hired signature-gatherers for a “voters’ initiative” to repeal SB 270, the single-use bag law signed by Gov. Brown in September. You can help shine the light on this signature drive by reporting on any petitions you observe in town: click here for Mark Murray’s call for awakened observation.

WHO WE ARE
Green Sangha is mindfulness-based environmental action. We offer monthly retreats, Mindful Activism Training, seasonal restoration days at Green Gulch, the Teen Environmental Leadership Academy, and more.
Meditation is the core practice that grounds us in the awareness of interdependence. From this awareness naturally springs love, understanding, and forgiveness. Learn more here: Why meditate?
Education. We educate ourselves and each other in order to live more wisely on the earth. We focus not so much on opposing destructive practices as on finding and promoting life-affirming alternatives. We speak to the good in others to inspire their participation in making the world a better place.
We educate through action sheets on target issues, through a visible presence at environmental festivals, and through direct outreach (speaking at schools, social clubs, churches, and community venues).
Actions. Green Sangha actions have addressed a wide range of issues, from rallying on the streets for climate protection, to testifying at public hearings on waste reduction, to participating in community clean-ups.
We collaborate with other environmental groups such as the Berkeley Ecology Center, Californians Against Waste, Earth Resource Foundation, Save the Bay, Sustainable San Rafael, and Transition Berkeley.
