Pope Francis has highlighted the problem of “our throwaway culture of Consumerism”. Our daily consumption of food and items we buy far exceeds the need for our survival. As a result of many of the unused and unwanted goods simply gets discarded. The constant high demand and oversupply of goods put a strain on our resources needed to produce and discard these materials, further degrading our environment.
It is time to start rethinking our lifestyles, consuming less and promoting ecological awareness to the people around us as part of our duty and calling to protect God’s creation.
