Are you planning to give up something for Lent?

Monica Lambton, JPIC Coordinator

Citizens for Public Justice (CPJ) has launched a campaign that is asking us to "Give it up for the Earth!" There are postcards to send to the Minister of the Environment, where we check off what we are pledging to give up for Lent that will lower our carbon footprint (driving less & taking greener modes of transport, eating a non-meat meal once a week or more, or a blank 'other' category where you can write in your personal pledge) and urging the Canadian Government to follow this example and take action to reduce our carbon footprint at a national level. Cards can be sent anytime during Lent. This is a great way for us to fulfill the promises we made in our Corporate Stance pledge on Climate Action. You can request a postcard from the JPIC office, or visit the CPJ website to order a bulk amount free of charge to distribute in your house, your parish and other places.
