FGC resources to help families live sustainably

In the age of instant gratification, technological dependency, and mottos like “bigger is better,” a question arises that becomes more urgent with each passing moment:

How, right now, can we live more sustainable lives?

Friends General Conference has pulled together written resources for families who wish to live more lightly on the earth. They include:

Can We Live Sustainably? by Chestnut Hill Friends Meeting
Stewardship of the Earth by Maury River Friends Meeting
Stewardship Definition from AFSC
“Practicing Sustainability” from Quaker Earthcare Witness
Faith & Play Guide and Play Kits from QuakerBooks
Earth Stewardship Reading List from QuakerBooks
Earth Day Reading List from QuakerBooks
