Our aim is to reduce each person’s Carbon Footprint through what we eat. You can check your impact through these links:
- Click here to test your knowledge of which foods are planet friendlier. (You’ll be presented with pairs of meals. Click on the image of the one that you think has a lower CO2 score. You may be surprised!)
- Foodprint Calculators can also help you understand how much your food choices impact the planet. Click here for a list of different Foodprint Calculators so you can figure out the carbon foodprint of different meals, and how your food intake compares to emissions from driving, heating a home and consuming water.
- Please remember to complete our Caring for Creation survey so we can all practise good stewardship and become a responsible Eco Church.
St George’s Church is reducing its environmental impact in various ways. One such project, which the church council has approved, is to install solar panels on the church roof. We are working on the management of implementing this. If you are interested in this project or others, please contact the church office.
St George’s Caring for Creation Group was formed to help everyone become better aware of the importance of sustainability, and to do everything we can to make our lifestyles on this Earth more sustainable.
As the famous conservationist Jane Goodall once said: “What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.”
