Conservation Policy

“Caring for creation means caring for your brother and sister”. Pope Francis “Laudato Si”

 

RESPONSIBILITY 

Caring for the environment ultimately means having responsibility for our fellow human beings.

As a Christian community we recognize that God has appointed us as stewards.

We recognize our obligation to be prudent caretakers of our environment for our neighbours, ourselves and for future generations.

 As a community, we will conserve our resources of water, energy, light and materials.

REDUCE

When we need to make substantial repairs to our buildings we will whenever possible use the latest technology and environmentally friendly means.

We will conserve our water resources and employ ways to limit the use of water in and around our buildings. We will seek ways to limit or reduce our use of any non-recyclable products.

We will be mindful of conserving energy and investigate and implement ways to reduce our use of electricity and fossil fuels.

REUSE

We will strive to use products made from recyclable and environmentally friendly materials in all our community related activities.

RECYCLE

We will commit to a program of recycling material such as paper, plastic, glass, metal and

compostable kitchen and garden waste.
