Join the Office of Ecological Sustainability in learning about the environmental impact of our diets as Nazareth’s Julia Gerwe “journeys” around the Congregation to calculate the emissions behind a plate of food in India, Belize, Botswana, and the United States. This falls in line with the Ecological Sustainability Committee’s commitment to educate the community surrounding General Assembly Directive 4B: “To eat a more locally-grown plant-based diet and grow more kitchen gardens.” Click here to view Julia’s journey.
