Tips For Reducing Your Impact
Adopt an Earth-Friendly Diet
Choosing to go meatless one day a week will make a big impact on your carbon footprint. Meat and dairy production generate large amounts of greenhouse gases. Explore vegetarian dining options once a week to delight your tastebuds and shrink your footprint.
What Other Catholics Are Doing
All across the country, Catholics are taking the St. Francis Pledge to Care for Creation and the Poor. Here are a few real stories of the bold steps fellow Catholics are taking to protect God’s Creation and advocate on behalf of people in poverty.
We hope these stories inspire you, your family or your organization to do everything you can to fulfill this important commitment and to fully live your faith in the protection of God’s gifts and the whole human family.
If you have a story of your own about fulfilling your pledge, you can also submit it here. We’ll be adding more stories on a regular basis, so perhaps your example of living your faith, of treading lightly and of acting boldly, will be an inspiration to others.
