Eco friendly Lent

Ash Wednesday is upon us, and there are ways to observe an eco-friendly Lent. For example, you can give up some item that also helps the earth such as bottled water, plastic straws, to-go coffee cups, paper napkins, and disposable diapers. Another idea is to not give up something, but to do one thing for each day of Lent that will help you on your journey to be greener such as starting to compost, picking up litter, buying a reusable water bottle or coffee cup, biking to work instead of driving, and supporting local businesses and farmers.
