- Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Repair, Recover
I do think we try to reduce, reuse and recycle as best we can. Personally, I do find it can be challenging in the use of simple things. Many communities compost – this is a requirement in many cities today. In Mexico, our Sisters have been composting for years, and utilize flowers and organic materials for making alternative medicines.
- We have installed Solar panels here at the Area Administration Center.
- Any new property landscaping is now with a view to planting drought resistant gardens.
- We have purchased hybrid vehicles that reduce fuel consumption and carbon emissions.
- New appliances are energy efficient.
- We have an onsite electric vehicle charging station.
- We make every effort to invest our monies in companies that reflect the values of Laudato Si. Specifically, we are trying to limit our investment in fossil fuel companies.
