Lent 2022 Pledge for the Planet
The members of the Circuit Eco Group will share some of their thoughts over the next 6 weeks. Many of them have made a 'pledge for the planet'; taking a particular area of their lives and make it more sustainable. They will share their highs and lows and hopefully encourage you to make a few simple changes in your household too. Maybe you could make one change this Lent..?
Pledge for the Planet 3 – A simple swap – washing up liquid
I bought a 5 litre bottle of Bio D washing Up liquid and used it to refill empty standard sized Fairy Liquid bottles. The bottles were labelled as:
MAGIC WASHING UP LIQUID – This bottle lasts an entire year, when empty just return it for a top up.
For Christmas I gave one each to my grown up son and daughter. They love it because it is kind to their hands and cleans their dishes brilliantly. I love it because it is so strong I rarely have to top up their bottles. The Planet loves it because it is kind to nature and saves plastic. So we are all winners!!
The rest of the bottle is being used to start an Eco Refill Station at Poppleton's 'Coffee On The Green' on the morning of first Tuesday of each month. So come along to grab a coffee and a bottle of Magic Washing Up Liquid!
Thank you, God, that you give us the gift of creativity. Help us to use that gift to be good stewards of your creation and to build community. We ask your blessing on new initiatives like those in Poppleton, which encourage people to take simple positive steps to protect your world.
