Green Your Spiritual Life: Evangelize

Tell the world Most people who consider themselves at least somewhat spiritual, regardless of their religion or set of beliefs, have realized that caring for the earth is imperative to their spiritual life. This week we’re sharing tips about how to align your inner life with your green life.

Tip #4: Be an Evangelist.

Many religions have always been about spreading the good word, and the environment could use that same type of help. If you passionately believe in preserving the planet, tell the world! It’s best to refrain from being too preachy, but a few well-targeted comments and messages could make the difference. A few ideas: Don’t be afraid to apply a slight bit of peer pressure with someone who doesn’t, say, recycle or turn off the lights. Slap a bumper sticker on your car, or throw on a shirt that broadcasts your faith in saving the environment. And tell your friends about these daily green tips; you can do so by going to this link and clicking on the "Share" button in the top right corner.
