“When they had all had enough to eat, he said to his disciples, “Gather the pieces that are left over. Let nothing be wasted.” (John 6:12)

If you are taking part in the Enviro-Lent challenge with our church family this year or are interested in learning more about sustainable living and why it matters, here are my top environmental resources to inspire and encourage you:

Moral Fibres

Wendy lives in West Lothian and blogs about all aspects of sustainable life from fashion, family life, beauty products and research pieces. Wendy’s blog is practical and relatable and it’s my go to option if I’m looking for some eco inspiration or easy to understand environmental research. 

Ruth Valerio

Ruth lives in the south of England and works for Tearfund. She is the author of L is for Lifestyle, and Just Living, both great books on Environmental Christian Living. Ruth’s blog covers advice on green living, recipes and faith based commentary on the environmental crisis.

 Zero Waste Chef

Anne-Marie lives in San Francisco and regularly blogs on zero waste cooking and green living. Her no judgement practical approach makes cutting down your food waste easy and you’ll likely find some new favourite recipes in the process (such as her roasted cauliflower leaves with pasta. Yum!). I love that Anne-Marie has a recipe index on her website making it easy to find what you need. Our family also uses her DIY Deodorant recipe!

Less Waste Laura

Laura lives in Glasgow and works for Tearfund (another great climate resource!). Her blog covers sustainable living and climate action. Her loving, down to earth approach will inspire you. 

Zero Waste Home

Bea’s book, Zero Waste Home is a must read for anyone looking to cut down their waste. Whilst Bea and her family do live a more extreme trash free existence, she encouraged me to consider what my family consume and buy and what happens when we throw items “away”.

 Ethical Consumer

Describing themselves as “Ethics made easy – a simple way to find the products that reflect your principles,” Ethical Consumer score products and services, giving each one an easy-to-read environmental rating. Some information is only available to subscribers.
