    Creation Justice Tips

    Provided by the UM Creation Justice Movement at umcreationjustice.org.

    1. Plant a patch or a whole garden full of food for pollinators. Essential to the growth of food for humans (both body and soul), butterflies, bees, and birds teeter toward extinction due to human-caused destruction of habitat and use of pesticides. Plant for creation.
    2. Avoid food waste, which in landfills becomes methane and exacerbates the climate crisis. Consume less in the first place. Across the globe, near and far, too many people are hungry. Consuming too much and wasting what's left over aren't healthy for people or planet. Justice means assuring enough for all.
    3. Remember the clear air during the COVID shut down? Also clear was the evidence that gasoline vehicles are a major culprit driving the emissions that pollute our air and lungs. Choose to reduce the emissions you create--travel less, combine trips, carpool, use public transportation, walk, bike, invest in an electric or hybrid vehicle, advocate to electrify school buses and company fleets.
