The Green Bible

Green Bible As interest in "creation care" continues to sweep religious communities, eco-minded Christians have a new resource: the green Bible. The book, published by HarperOne, is made with soy-based inks and recycled paper. Passages pertaining to environmentalism are highlighted in—you guessed it—green.

Not all Christian publishers are rushing to the presses. The Christian Science Monitor, a newspaper owned by the First Church of Christ, Scientist, will save paper and money by going online. The newspaper plans to drop its dead tree edition starting in April.

Religiously motivated earth stewardship isn't limited to the Christian crowd. Buddhist monks in Thailand are enjoying a new temple made entirely from recycled beer bottles.
