Lenten Resource: Carbon Fast Calendar

Lutherans Restoring Creation encourages you to try one new practice every day that may prevent further desecration of God’s good Creation or harm to those in the wake of unjustly utilized natural resources.  Rather than giving things up – you will be taking on new habits that help us all!

As we recall Jesus’ 40 days of fasting in the desert, may this “Carbon Fast” not only strengthen our faith, but also prove that taking little steps toward environmental stewardship can have a big impact.

You can get started now by calculating your carbon footprint at https://www.carbonfootprint.com/calculator.aspx and then calculate your energy savings throughout the season of Lent.
Share your results with other members of your congregation (and share on a report to Lutherans Restoring Creation!) to see how, together as a community of faith and action, we are caring for God’s Creation in measurable ways.
