Carbon Fast 40 Days of Lent
South West Dioceses Tackling Climate Change Together
The South West Dioceses are running a Carbon Fast for Lent 2015.
It is 40 days to consider what you can do to reduce your carbon footprint and reflect on key passages from the Bible.
How do you affect the planet through the pattern of your energy consumption?
This year is a vital year for the planet as hopefully there will be a ground breaking agreement on the Climate in Paris in December.
The particular focus for the Fast is on the link between our use of water, which needs to be pumped, cleaned and stored;
our energy use and the things we consume.
Did you know for example it takes 11,000 litres to make a pair of jeans and 140 litres of water to make a single cup of coffee?
For each day of Lent you can receive a daily email with an action to consider (except Sundays), a bible reading and specially written reflection.
You can sign up for these here (http://ecochurchsouthwest.org.uk/carbon-fast
The daily actions and readings are viewable below and also available together as a leaflet (downloadable below as a PDF).
