					Eco-Logic: A Multi-faith Eco-Buying Collective
What is Eco-Logic? Eco-Logic is a project of Faith and the Common Good – a national, multi-faith, environmental organization. Eco-Logic is an eco-buying collective that helps faith communities combine their purchasing power to acquire environmental products at reduced prices. This promotes an economically-viable shift to a more sustainable society since the cost of switching to environmental products will be more reasonable when faith groups are working together. What products are available? The pilot project for Eco-Logic has only recently been launched in Ottawa in January 2007 with 4 key products: post-consumer recycled paper, energy efficient lighting, environmentallyfriendly cleaners, and beeswax candles. These products were selected after several meetings that outlined the needs of faith communities. The actual products used for the initiative will depend on testing that is currently being done by various faith communities to ensure that the products are adequate for their needs. It is expected that additional products could be added in the future, but for the pilot project, only these four will be promoted. How does a faith community join? There is no cost to joining Eco-Logic. The first step is to fill out the interest form below and for the Facilitator (a representative from the faith community who will act as a link between the place of worship and Faith and the Common Good) to do some research within their own faith group. Once enough interest forms have been submitted to generate an order for a particular product, the price will be determined (based on the size of the order) and an Order Form will be provided to the faith community. This process will be reviewed continually to ensure that the most cost-effective and efficient methods are being used.
