Religion and environmentalism join forces in GreenFaith


It's probably fair to say that environmentalists and religious people often find themselves on the opposite sides of some issues.

But care of the planet is not limited to one group of people, and the organization GreenFaith is determined to put the force of religious people into environmentalism.

The group's mission statement identifies Earth and all of its people as sacred and at risk.

Andra Hollenbeck is a member of the group in the Rogue Valley. We visit to get a sense of how GreenFaith carries out its mission.
