CLIMATE CHANGE AND YOUR STREET
Have you ever done anything
toward the issue of Climate Change?
Periodically we've been asked by members, if NPN has ever done anything
toward the issue of Climate Change. Before recently the answer would
have been no.
Last month however, we have created a new project called The Climate Trust,
which is partnering with the Neighbourhood Prayer Network
(For more information, please visit Neighbourhood Prayer Network)
Most people only do the council mandated
recycling, but not much else.
The biggest issue with Climate change is
mankind cuts down around 15 billion trees
per year and only replants 5 billion.
Trees suck in Carbon and Produce Oxygen, so we've been slowly suffocating
ourselves and warming the planet up too much.
The Climate Trust is full of ideas on what you can do in your home to reduce
carbon, and the main focus of the project is to plant as many trees as possible.
If you would like to become a member of The Climate Trust please visit
www.theclimatetrust.com The Climate Trust
In its first month over 1,500 trees have been planted.
Being a member of The Climate Trust means they will plant trees on your behalf
each month. Your family and Church can also register and they will be offering a
climate review of Church and Organisational membership, to help reduce the
carbon footprint of each organisation.
St.Michael and All Angels, Bugbrooke

disciples of all
