At St Michael’s we are working towards the Eco Church Bronze Award. (And then, hopefully, silver and gold!). Eco Church is all about the care of the church for God’s Earth, and we can all be involved, both at church and at home. In all aspects of our lives there are ways to make more caring, ecological choices in what we choose to do, use, buy. Some things are easy, some more challenging, some you might never have thought of …
Here are some links to get you started, including an environmental lifestyle audit for you to use at home to see what differences you could make. It certainly got me thinking!
