Revisiting our VIDES Mangrove Planting Activity this Season of Creation

As the Season of Creation continues, let’s have a throwback of our last Mangrove Planting in Mindoro in 2019. I know we all miss going to different places and planting mangrove seedlings for the community but for now, let us continue praying and caring for our common home in our own way.

The theme for this year is “A Home for All? Renewing the Oikos of God." Oikos is the Greek word for house, including the Earth, our common home, everyone living in it, and the web of connections that unites all living things in our common home.

 VIDES Philippines continues to encourage NOT to use plastic bags, which is being implemented even in solidarity relief operations or “Hatid Ayuda” programs. Beneficiaries bring their own container or recyclable bags. VIDES communities are also encouraged to grow plants in their own home. They even had a bayanihan event of cleaning up their environment. We continue to bring awareness about the environment and the importance of segregation and praying for our common home through solidarity prayers.

Hope this inspires you to think of ways to do Earth-saving measures in your own way. Make a habit of caring for God’s creation!
