Creation Care Corner-We are called to do what is right, even if it requires more effort. Creation Care issues for you to pray about and ponder on.
Nov. 8, 2019 will be the LAST day that stores in Southbridge will be able to give out single use shopping bags because the town adopted a law to restrict plastic bag distribution. This law goes into effect on Nov. 9! Many of the Southbridge stores are electing to charge shoppers for paper bags -as much as 15 cents per bag! So, get ready and remember when shopping in Southbridge, to bring your own re-useable bags OR pay for paper bags. I believe that this is just the start. In the UK and other countries around the world, grocery stores will no longer use foam trays (commonly used to package meat, and vegetables) and they are reducing ALL single use packaging by 50% by 2021.
You can make a difference starting TODAY –think before you buy –ask yourself “does the item I am buying need the Creation Care Corner-We are called to do what is right, even if it requires more effort. Creation Care issues for you to pray about and ponder on.packaging it has, or, can I buy an alternate with more eco-friendly packaging”? Ask your-self, “why is it that paper towel & toilet paper rolls are wrapped in single use plastic? TELL the STORE where YOU purchase these products –every time you purchase them –that YOU WANT paper towel and toilet paper rolls wrapped in paper! They will soon make the change! Remember, there is NO PLANet B!
