TEAR Carbon Fast

Around this time of year, many people decide to give up something for Lent. Obviously, one of the best things we could give up would be carbon pollution. TEAR publishes a guide to help people do a Carbon Fast.

In the guide, each week has a theme, and there are actions around that theme. It's not a traditional fast (ie. total avoidance for 40 days, then back to old habits). It's more about trying out some ways in which we can live a more planet-friendly, and people-friendly lifestyle.

For those of a christian orientation, there is a bible study to match each theme.

ps. Lent this year is Feb 22 - Apr 7. And for those in the UK, there is a similar (but more British) version run by tearfund.
