If you and your friends have children of a similar age, why not consider swapping a couple of their toys, for a month or more? It will give your children some great new things to play with, at no extra cost to you or the planet. An added bonus is they’ll probably enjoy their own toys much more when they get them back.
The livesimply award is an opportunity for Catholic communities – parishes, schools, religious orders and chaplaincies – to respond to Pope Francis’ invitation in ‘Laudato Si’ to “work with generosity and tenderness in protecting this world which God has entrusted to us”.
Our parish and school are both aiming to achieve the award this year.
As part of our commitment we’re posting a weekly suggestion to livesimply.
