‘Kermit was correct, being green really is tough, so tough that the color itself fails dismally. The cruel truth is that most forms of the color green, the most powerful symbol of sustainable design, aren’t ecologically responsible, and can be damaging to the environment.’
.… so says the New York Times.
Just thought I would leave you with a bit of Friday irony!

Happy World Environment Week!
Use this week to celebrate the Creator through enjoying this creation and being better stewards of it.
Some of the ways you might do this are:
- take a walk somewhere you would normally drive. Try doing it all week!
- plant something
- only buy things that you need. try doing this all week!
- use everything in your fridge before it goes bad this week
- ‘waste time’ enjoying God’s creation as you go about your day.
- visit the zoo/garden/aquarium or similar
- re-read the creation story and enjoy again the wonder of God’s amazing creativeness.
- reuse something
- drink only water this week
‘It is a witty, story-based approach to the green conversation. Green Mama is a project for moms who are too busy to think about composting but really want to make a difference. It’s for moms who believe that God created this world and actually cares about what we do with it and how our kids experience it.’ by the author
- Read A climate for change by Katharine Hayhoe & Andrew Farley
“This engaging book has everything you need to understand the climate change debate: facts, answers, stories, and of course Scripture. It will inform the merely curious or answer the skeptic or equip the person who wants to fix the problem. I loved it!’ Amazon review
Leave a comment and let me know how it goes…. or what you are doing already to care for the planet. I would love to hear your thoughts.
*** I have changed my appearance of the blog to celebrate… but just for this week!
