The film "The Blue Nuns Go Green" is presented by the Recycling and Reuse Technology Transfer Center. Several years ago, the Immaculate Heart of Mary Sisters' home earned a reputation as a national model of sustainable living. Since then the Sisters have developed an array of multimedia educational resources that include DVDs, books, a children's storybook, a quarterly bulletin and prayer cards on sustainability and the spirituality of sustainability. This film tells the story of the transformational spirituality that led the IHM Sisters to sustainably renovate their 376,000-square-foot Motherhouse.
