Hello again friends,
Greetings. Last week we went to
a weekend Retreat at the Brahma Kumaris Centre for Spiritual Learning outside Melbourne: along with Charlie Hogg and BKA leadership. We were surprised to find, contrary to BK Environment Protocols (eco.brahmakumaris.org)
that the 100+ BKs attending were served on 'disposable'(?) plastic plates: many hundreds of them...plates, cups, knives and forks: see fotos below.When we questioned this we were told 'Well..noone wants to do the washing-up'.
'Plastic Free Life' image and text below is from the official BK Environment Wing website: www.eco.brahmakumaris.org
PLASTIC FREE BRAHMA KUMARIS!
Plastic has become a major environmental and health hazard, as it ultimately breaks down into microplastic, which can be found all over the planet. Meanwhile, the usage of plastic has spiraled out of control - bags, bottles,
straws, utensils, polystyrene cups, film, food packaging and more. Brahma Kumaris Environmental Initiative aims to reduce the usage of plastic in the BK centers. Let us help nature by being an example!
