Forget chocolate, Bishops care about your carbon footprint during lent

I’m psyched that bishops are encouraging those that observe lent to consider giving up something that will reduce his or her carbon footprint.

However, I’m not sure their suggestion to refrain from using mobile devices for a day is in the running for top ways to do so.

They should reconsider the way in which they’re encouraging the reduction of people’s impact on the environment.

If we’re talking about observing lent, shouldn’t bishops be encouraging people to make more traditional and serious sacrifices than leaving the cell phone home for day?

Shutting off the electricity at home for a day, using public transportation for a period of time, only supporting local stores, or something much more genuinely sacrificial could be considered.

Regardless, I’m glad that people’s carbon footprint is being considered during lent this year.
