As our congregation has implemented various changes to reduce our plastic consumption and carbon footprint, we’ve been building bridges throughout the congregation, within our sponsored ministries, alongside other organizations and even globally with the United Nations.
Better than recycling, we can help by reducing our plastic consumption in the first place. Swap out some of the products that come into your home in single-use plastic packaging for more sustainable options.
We encourage everyone to contact their country’s lead negotiator for the plastics treaty. Urge them to continue pushing for meaningful systemic change.
The Congregations of Sisters of St. Joseph Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) attended the United Nations’ second Intergovernmental Negotiating Committee (INC-2) on Plastic Pollution in Paris from May 29 – June 2.
Our sisters support the Biden Administration’s new Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) rules that will restrict carbon dioxide emissions from power plants.
As vowed Catholic religious and our partners in mission, we wholeheartedly affirm that transgender, nonbinary, and gender-expansive individuals are beloved and cherished by God.
