Ways to reduce, reuse, recycle

CHERAS: Together with the Art Exhibition, there were three booths for people to interact. Participants, especially children, were huddled at the Art Demo booth of Anusha Charles — one of the three judges of the art work. It was definitely a popular desk filled with paint trays, brushes, crayons, pastels and art papers. The three judges – Christine Das, Anusha Charles and Marisha Peter Santhiago — spent time reviewing the art entries and selecting the winners.

The next booth featured Kloth Cares, an enterprise collecting fabric, clothes and textiles for recycling so that nothing is wasted. They also produce hand towels from recycled plastics (six medium sized plastic bottles make one hand towel). It was an opportunity to get to know how we can reuse fabric in a sustainable way.

At the third booth, people were shown a variety of useful eco friendly food containers — for coffee mornings or ‘tapau’ – which are biodegradable or compostable. These were good alternatives to plastics  and styrofoam and helpful to parish use as we always gather around food while celebrating our faith and life together.

The Lenten Campaign theme of Caring for Our Common Home is spread over three years with the following sub themes: Stewards of Ecological Change (2018), followed by Encounter and Serve as Stewards (2019) and Stewards Protecting Creation (2020). It is hoped that by giving focus to the three themes, a deepening awareness of our responsibility to care for and protect our Common Home is generated every day of our lives.

Pope Francis challenges us in his letter Laudato Si – “What kind of world do we want to leave to those who come after us, to children who are now growing up?” (LS 160). Like the Grateful Samaritan, we can truly sing praises of thanksgiving to God by serving as stewards, guardians or protectors of all of God’s creation that is given to us as a gift. Laudato Si! --AOHD (Archdiocesan Office for Human Development) Kuala Lumpur
