Confessions of an imperfect tree hugger…

Actually I wish I was a much better tree hugger. I strive to be better in my personal environmental ethic by informing myself and adjusting my own personal behaviors. I don’t know if you’ve experienced this…but its certainly frustrating to want to recycle in public and see no recycling bin on the horizon. Does anyone else feel like the recycling movement has stalled?

I read Becky Garrison’s Red and Blue God and Black and Blue Church earlier this summer. It has a great analysis across a range of salient political issues, including the environment from a faith-based perspective. One great quote she highlighted:

“Only after the last tree has been cut down; only after the last river has been poisiones; only after the last fish has been caught, only then will you find that money can’t be eaten.” Cree prophecy

For more information check out Becky’s book and reviews or the Evangelical Environmental Network
