For some years now our sisters in the English/Scottish Province have been trying hard to reduce the amount of the Earth’s wealth they use by recycling, cutting down on water usage and using low energy bulbs and energy efficient equipment. They have also taken steps to reduce the amount of carbon they release into the atmosphere to limit the effects of global warming.
Damage reduction, by reducing our Carbon Footprint, has been the approach we have taken so far but we are now embarking on a more ambitious strategy, to engage in action to enhance the Earth’s wellbeing, to enlarge our Green Footprint. The first tentative step was taken when the ‘Care For The Earth’ group invited each sister to grow something- flower, fruit or vegetable from scratch! – and here are some of the results of our efforts!
