Inspired by the Climate Ribbon Project, the Dallas and Ft. Worth networks of Interfaith Power & Light asked Earth Day Texas 2016 participants to share a message of hope, a call to action, or a commitment for the Earth as an #EarthlineRibbon. The project was particularly attractive to children who came by, but plenty of adults participated as well. Spaced out over coming months, we will share each inspiring message in this space.
Have you signed on to the Paris Pledge, committing to reduce your carbon footprint by 50% by 2030 and to be carbon neutral by 2050? Making a verbal or written commitment is a good start. But where to next? Meeting that commitment can be overwhelming to think about, so here are some steps that will help you keep it simple and achievable.
Earth Day Texas (EDTx) is only a few weeks away! On April 22-24 at Fairpark in Dallas, the Ft. Worth and Dallas chapters of Interfaith Power & Light will be hosting an indoor booth, joining hundreds of other organizations, schools, and businesses in celebrating the Earth and promoting more sustainable lifestyles.

Midway Hills Christian Church in Dallas is hosting Dallas Interfaith Power & Light for a prayer vigil in support of the #COP21 climate negotiations in Paris. This round of talks begins on November 30 and will bring together heads of state and other stakeholders, in an attempt to finalize a binding international agreement to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and to support the fossil fuel transitions of developing nations. We just want to pray for their success, and to consider what role we can play in implementation.
