Week 2, Day 5
"Fasting" from: Plastic | Some strategies: reusable bags, reusable water bottle, say "no" to plastic bags, straws, lids, etc.

Is avoiding single-use plastic harder than you thought it would be? For me, it definitely has been a challenge.

Today's devotion video takes a humorous look at that. But in all seriousness, I feel like I am just starting to get the hang of living without (or mostly without) plastic, and thi week is almost over. I think I'm going to keep trying at this one -- how about you?


In today's video: You can't escape. We live in a plastic world. But there IS another option.
Today's Daily Action
Go to your "wilderness place." Give yourself some time to process what your carbon fast has been like for you, to pray, to read the Bible, meditate, observe, rest or -- shocker -- just . . . be.

Haven't found your "wilderness place" yet? (A convenient, peaceful outdoor place to retreat for short periods during Lent) Well, then finding it is your daily action for today. (It will be the same tomorrow, in case you don't have time today.)
