Lecture Tuesday on how to lower carbon footprint

The mid-March nor’easter forced the cancellation of an environmental lecture at the Chapel of St. John the Divine, but the Saunderstown church has rescheduled the presentation for 7 p.m. Tuesday.

The Rev. Anita Schell, rector of Emmanuel Church in Newport, will discuss ways that Rhode Islanders can improve their carbon footprint. Although there are simple ways to improve energy use — carpool, install efficient appliances, recycle — Schell will walk audience members through a practical analysis of their energy consumption. She also will discuss a “carbon fast.”

Refreshments will be served during the free presentation. The chapel is at 20 Church Way, just off Willett Road from Boston Neck Road.
