treat the Earth and its creatures is a part of all Friends’
relationship with God. Our planet as a whole, not just the parts of
it under our care, requires our responsible attention. As we become
aware of how all life is interconnected and the destruction caused
by neglect of any part of nature, our stewardship of the natural
world is ever more important.
Since wasteful consumption is a major cause of environmental
destruction, we believe in the right sharing of the world’s resource
through which underdeveloped countries can have more while at the
same time restoring the Earth’s life-sustaining systems.
We, as Friends, have a concern for this planet on which we live and
recognize the need to control the endless consumption by adapting
lifestyles which put the least strain on our world’s resources.
