Help end plastic pollution

In his encyclical Laudato Si, Pope Francis praises efforts to care for creation “through little daily actions” which he says can change the world. Such things as avoiding the use of plastic, reducing water consumption, sorting and recycling rubbish, using public transport or car-pooling – “all these reflect a generous and worthy creativity which brings out the best in human beings.” When done for the right reasons, these practices “can be an act of love which expresses our own dignity… They can enable us to live more fully and to feel that life on earth is worthwhile.” (LS, par 211-212)
