Tips For Reducing Your Impact

Travel Lightly

If your destination is close, consider walking or biking instead of driving. Every mile you travel with foot power instead of petrol power saves one pound of carbon.

Covenant Partners

The Catholic Climate Covenant is widely embraced by the Catholic community. Fully twenty-seven national Catholic organizations support the Catholic Climate Covenant.  From the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops to the National Federation of Priests Councils, the Covenant has tapped a desire for Catholic organizations and their constituents to understand and act on the threat of climate change from a Catholic perspective.  This perspective holds both care for creation and care for those must vulnerable to climate change and environmental threats: poor people at home and abroad.

Catholic partners that actively support the Covenant and promote the St. Francis Pledge to Care for Creation and the Poor, include:
