St Mary’s Church Eco Group - Happy November to You All.

So, did you manage to change a product to an eco friendly one? Please try thinking globally and acting locally. Why not consider supporting some good causes this month.
COP26 1st – 12th November
It’s not too late to add your support to this most important of world conferences. There are many ways you can do this. Perhaps consider signing the Climate Coalition declaration that is being given to the Prime minister. Visit https://www.theclimatecoalition.org/cop26 to find out more. Go to https://thetimeisnow.uk/ to sign the declaration. Here is what the declaration says:-
Dear Prime Minister, The time is now to lead the UK towards a healthier, greener, fairer future. Ahead of hosting the United Nations climate summit in Glasgow in 2021, we can build back better together if we:
• Unleash a clean energy revolution that boosts jobs across the UK, making our transport, power and housing fit for the future
• Protect, restore and expand our green and wild spaces; allowing nature to thrive, taking carbon from the air and boosting the nation’s health
• Leave no one behind by increasing support to those most vulnerable to the impacts of climate change at home and abroad The UK must lead the world by ensuring our recovery gets us on track to net-zero emissions and limits the rise in global temperature to 1.5 degrees C. Our best chance of building a resilient economy goes hand in hand with tackling climate change. We are ready to play our part, and we call on you to join us.
Pray for COP26, all who attending and not attending who really need to be there, as well as all those that are involved in any way. That is all of us by the way – the whole world!
ECO-TIPS for NOVEMBER
One of the main disadvantages of regular cleaning products is the array of harmful chemicals they contain, such as ammonia, phthalates, chlorine, nonoxynols and many, many more. As a result of these harmful chemicals, it is not uncommon for people and pets to experience skin irritation and allergic reactions. Disposal of them, even down the sink, is harmful to the environment. However, in contrast, eco-friendly products contain a lot of natural ingredients such as lactic acid, citric acid and enzymes which are much less harsh and over-powering.
The cost of eco cleaning products may vary depending on where you source them; you can purchase non-toxic cleaning products from most supermarkets and stores, and you can even make your own natural cleaning products too. As well as the environmental and health benefits, there are also long-term advantages to using eco-friendly cleaning products. With natural alternatives to abrasive, chemical cleaning agents, you can avoid significant wear and tear to your home and potentially enjoy longer periods of time before having to replace surfaces. Using eco-friendly products will keep your home free from dangerous chemicals for a healthier environment for you and yours, and the planet!
