CARING FOR OUR COMMON HOME
Pope Francis writes that ‘we are one single human family’ and that ‘we cannot fail to consider the effects on people’s lives of environmental deterioration, current models of development and the throwaway culture.’
The plastic we throw away is having a disastrous effect on the environment.

Pope Francis tells us that we are faced with a complex crisis which is both social and environmental. The solution demands an integrated approach to combating poverty, restoring dignity to the underprivileged, and at the same time protecting nature.
