Tomorrow is Mardi Gras, also known as Fat Tuesday, which is followed by Ash Wednesday, signaling the beginning of Lent and our Lenten Plastic fast. Mardi Gras is a Carnival celebration-- a time when the extra meat, milk, and sweets, that would be restricted during the Lenten fast, would be consumed so they wouldn't go to waste.
I will spend this Mardi Gras planning and indulging in purchases that I cannot find plastic free alternatives. I don't go crazy and buy a ton of stuff. I just think about what I might miss the most, like meat and cheese, which is nearly impossible to buy without plastic.
Just a heads up. We are doing things a little different this year. First, the daily devotionals will live on the website, Instagram, Twitter (and hopefully Facebook) but we will not be emailing them everyday. Secondly, we will write more blog posts, these will replace the daily email.
Thank you for coming on this adventure with us.
