Environmentally aware action is a part of life in Australia. The 2011 National Church
Life Survey paints a picture of the environmental actions of church attenders by
drawing on the results of a small sample survey of approximately 1,300 attenders.
Household/consumer environmental activities, such as purchasing environmentally
friendly products and reducing water and energy consumption, were being undertaken
by a majority of attenders in 2011, especially older people. Civic environmental
actions, such as participating in an environmental event or contacting a member
of Parliament about an environmental issue were much less common. Denominational
differences in environmental actions of church attenders were few.
