Heed Pope Francis' appeal to end culture of waste
MetadataShow full item record
Zero Waste, according to Aquino’s Proclamation 760, “is a goal that is ethical, economical, efficient and visionary to guide people in changing their lifestyles and practices to emulate sustainable natural cycles, where all discarded materials are designed to become resources for others to use.” Lucero said,“Pope Francis is known for his simplicity, his preference for public transportation, and his affection and respect for those who recycle such as the waste pickers.” The honor and adulation for him should include emulating the virtues that he lives by. Lucero recalled that the plea for “Zero Waste” by the late Jaime Cardinal Sin in 2003 on the occasion of the 4th World Meeting of Families should inform and guide the Catholic Church in preparing for the papal visit.
