December 1-24, 2019
Challenge: Choose one item each day to gift, upcycle, or donate while also practicing mindful consumption and simplicity of time.
As we enter into the Season of Advent, we also enter a time associated with consumerism and shopping. Challenge yourself to simplify and make space for prayer in preparation for Christmas this Advent. Collect one item a day that can be donated or recycled at the end of the month, and use our daily Advent calendar for ways to learn, pray, and act on the issue of mass consumption.
Challenge: Fast from food waste.
Globally, 30 percent of food grown is wasted, and food waste accounts for 8 percent of total global greenhouse gas emissions. This Lent, give up food waste! Receive weekly tips on how to reduce your food waste footprint and use prayer and advocacy resources on your Lenten journey.
