Creation & Creationtide

 " Creationtide" runs from September 1st to October 4th and is a time when the church thinks about God as creator and sustainer and how we care for his creation.

As a church we are looking at becoming greener through the A Rocha eco-church awards but to get the first one we still have a little way to go in terms of lifestyle.

While we, as church, look at what we can do to tread more lightly on God's earth, how about trying out an online eco survey to see what your personal impact is? 

These two web sites wwf.org  and carbonfootprint.com are a good place to start.

Green tip for this week - easy one to start with.

Reducing meat consumption is one way to tread lightly on the planet. Could this be the week to try out a new vegetarian recipe?

 Green tip for this week - there is a Zero Waste shop in Wareham, "Bare Necessities".  If you are over that way, why not take an empty bottle in for a refill rather than buy a new one.
