World Day of Prayer for Peace
Even though this day has passed, continue the theme by making it a year of prayer for peace as well as action on behalf of the whole Earth community. Suggestion: Make it a year of cutting down on single use plastics.
"Humans have created 8.3 billion tons of plastic in the past 67 years-6.3 billion tons of which have become waste in our landfills and natural environment, especially the ocean. Though these numbers may seem insurmountable, the simple decision to not buy single-use plastics, such as plastic bottles, plastic bags, plastic straws and any products containing microplastics such as exfoliators and glitter, would help tremendously."
