Before it was cool to be green, we at Wild Frontier have been encouraging youth workers to teach, talk, and live a creation care worldview because this is an issue many youth are concerned about and it is a Christian responsibility.  Creation Care is more than a trend. This is more than a political issue.  It is obedience to one of the first commands God gave Adam.  Genesis 1:28 tells us "Be responsible for the fish in the sea and the birds in the air, and for every living thing that moves on the face of the Earth." (The Message) When you study all of the scriptures with this eye, you will see that the Church should have been the leaders in any and all of the environmental movements.  We as Christians have a responsibility to fulfill to our Earth.  We always have.  It's too late to take the lead on this but we certainly can get involved.

Bringing your church and youth ministry near and direct to Creation Care is a youth ministry issue.  Our teens are becoming more and more passionate about this.  So are the ever‑so‑slow‑adapting adults.  Typical of adolescence, teens become passionate about many things that don't transfer into their adult years.  However, we have hope that with a proper approach to Creation Care in youth ministry we can address that passion and teach lifelong habits about our responsibility to "every living thing that moves on the face of Earth."

5 Simple Ways to Drastically Reduce our Plastic Consumption

"A lot of plastic is simply unnecessary, particularly packaging. Woodring points to the example of Replenish, which is re-conceptualizing the spray-cleaner bottle. Instead of always using new bottles, Replenish sells a reusable one, along with cartridges of cleaner concentrate. It says it’s absurd to ship new bottles around the world when 99% of the volume is water, which we can just get from the tap."
