Care of Creation

 
Care of Creation Expo
 
In the period of April to June 2017, the Care of Creation group of the Catholic Parish of Napier held four Care of Creation Eco Fairs which were based around the theme “How to save environment and money”.
We chose 6 different subjects to present to our fellow parishioners:
  1. Living on a Budget: 15 Great Ways to Save Money on Your Grocery Shopping
  2. Environmentally Friendly Household Cleaners
  3. Insulating Your Home
  4. Power Saving
  5. Recycling in Napier
  6. Fertilise Your Garden by Having a Compost Heap and/or a Worm Farm


The members of the group researched these subjects and then created small information booklets as hand outs.
To share the information with our fellow parishioners, we set up 4 different sessions, after a mass in each of the three church communities. Here we had a table set up for each subject and parishioners could come and find out what we had learned. Reignier School also participated with a table showcasing the school's environmental teaching and action.

The eco fairs are being repeated in 2018 with a few additional tables and leaflets.

 
We also created booklets that summarised the information.
These booklets are free to download here:
  1. Living on a Budget
  2. Environmentally Friendly Household Cleaners
  3. Insulating Your Home
  4. Power Saving
  5. Recycling in Napier
  6. Reduction of CO2 and Car fuel savings
  7. Water
