This year over 800 PC(USA) congregations ordered Eco-Palms for Palm Sunday worship services. This 10% increase in orders over last year means that together Presbyterians purchased over 150,000 Eco-Palm fronds. Eco-Palms are harvested sustainably and provide economic development opportunities for harvesting communities in Guatemala and Mexico.
If your congregation ordered, check the PC(USA) Eco-Palms website for info on when to expect your shipment, how to care for palms when they arrive, download a bulletin insert and 3-minute educational video, and more.
If your congregation didn't order, consider Eco-Palms for next year. Orders for 2012 will be open after the first of the year, so make a note to return to the website in January to place your order for Palm Sunday 2012 in advance.
