Day 19: #zerowaste

Expectant parents, Mary and Joseph were super resourceful and didn’t waste a thing. When no room is available for Mary to give birth in, they turn a desperate situation round. Even a manger takes on a new significance as the saviour of the world has his first encounter with the true grit of life: an animal’s trough transforms as it hosts the glory of a newborn King.

I’ve often looked at my dustbin at the end of Christmas and felt a bit sick. The waste I, along with my friends and family, have created can seem overwhelming and a million miles away from that precious, sacred story it all relates to.

Ahead of Christmas, why not spend a few minutes thinking about what you could do this year to waste a little less. Check out #zerowaste for some great tips and stay tuned to Tearfund Lifestyle for inspiration to live differently this Christmas.
