This is still a Rubbish Campaign
Our world has an urgent rubbish problem. One in four of us have no safe way to dispose of rubbish, meaning many are forced to live and work among piles of waste. But Christians around the world are uniting to take action.
The rapid growth of single-use plastics and mismanaged waste is fuelling our rubbish problem, threatening people’s health and making the climate emergency worse.
Jesus told his followers that even the smallest amount of faith can move mountains.
So, we are asking you to join us in prayer and action, to demand an end to plastic pollution and this rubbish problem.
Our world has a rubbish problem – and it’s hitting people living in poverty the hardest. More than 50,000 of us have taken action together.
When we care for and act to protect God’s creation, it is one way of loving and worshipping God with all our heart, soul, mind and strength, as Jesus taught us (Mark 12:30).
Making changes to the way we do things isn’t always easy or straightforward but there are steps we can take that move us towards a life that is less plastic and more of the abundance God intends.
Tearfund has created this Guide to help you, in a prayerful and practical way, to consume less and connect more. It’s not a quick, easy fix but it’s a place to start. And wherever it is you start, we pray and trust God will meet you there.Download
