Eco-Challenge for Lent #2

During Lent we will be encouraging everyone to take part in an Eco-Challenge. There will be challenges that we can all do together to reduce our carbon footprint. The first challenge continues – clothes swap – and we’re now ready to start the second challenge!

This is all part of our commitment as an Eco-Congregation in identifying small ways we can help tackle climate change and look after the environment, both as a church and individually.

If you want to find out more, speak to our Eco-Ambassador, Catriona Jeorrett.

THE SECOND CHALLENGE – REDUCE FOOD WASTE

The second challenge is to eliminate food waste by freezing leftovers and weighing portions of pasta to avoid cooking too much.

Find out how this can help

Eco-fact: “A staggering 30-40% of the food produced in the world is never eaten. This says nothing of the gross injustice of wasting so much food while so many in the world go hungry.”

John 6:12 Good News Translation (GNT)
When they were all full, he said to his disciples, “Gather the pieces left over; let us not waste a bit.”
