The Green Team

The Green Team at Temple Beth Shalom is dedicated to practicing Tikkun Olam (repairing the world) by empowering our community at the individual and organizational levels to minimize our impact on the environment.

Goals:  The Green Team encourages a "do no harm" ethic in all our actions and endeavors, demonstrating a respect for nature.


Our objectives include:

  • community engagement
  • supporting sustainability
  • educational programs, and
  • advocacy.
Recycling Drop-off Day
Sunday, Jan. 12, 8:30 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.

Drop off your unwanted Styrofoam, paint cans, and rechargeable batteries at Temple Beth Shalom, and The Green Team will take them to the Austin Recycle Center. (Any type of paint is OK; seal the cans well.) Take advantage of this easy way to safely dispose of these items!


If not now, when? If not us, who? 
And if I am not for the planet, then who will be? (a modern twist on Hillel)

Concerned about climate change, plastic pollution, and what we are doing to our environment? Interested in helping Temple Beth Shalom  reduce our ecological footprint? Please join our Green Team! For more info, or to give us ideas, please contact congregant Christy Esmahan at
