Resources for Christians and seekers
The concept of recycling is easy to accept but the actual practice--and how to get started--may be a challenge. But our call as Christians requires that we not waste God's gifts to us.

Recycling one ton of paper saves seventeen trees, two barrels of oil (enough to run the average car for 1,260 miles); 4,100 kilowatts of energy (enough power for the average home for six months); 3.2 cubic yards of landfill space; and sixty pounds of air pollution.

The raw materials of every single thing on earth are a gift from God. Glass? It's made from sand. Paper? It's made with wood pulp. Plastic water bottles? They contain a byproduct of petroleum, a naturally occurring substance. Ultimately, they are all a part of God's creation and should not be declared "worthless" by tossing them in a landfill.

While this study explores the values expressed by a decision to recycle, it also serves as a wonderfully practical guide to getting started in your home and in your community. Participants will learn what we can recycle and why we should be doing so.
