Earth Care

Reduce kitchen waste:

  • Be mindful of perishables in your refrigerator to be used rather than tossed.

  • Start a compost pile to reduce the waste sent to the landfill. It’s easier than you’d think, and you’ll be amazed how much compostable scraps you have in a week!

Reduce single-use disposables:

  • Use washable napkins and dishtowels rather than throwaway paper ones.

  • Avoid plastic containers where possible. Buy beverages in cans (aluminum is still recyclable) or try brewing your own iced tea!

Reduce beef consumption:

  • Eat beef one less time per week. Replacing it with a vegetarian meal is terrific, but even another animal protein will have an impact. Here’s how many liters of water is used in the production of one kilogram of animal protein:

                  Beef     15,400 L/kg

                  Lamb     8,800 L/kg

                  Pork      6,000 L/kg

                  Chicken 4,300 L/kg

The Joining Hands Peru Network was started in the 1990s with the help of the Presbyterian Hunger Program. The member organizations work at the grassroots level, accompanying communities and non-governmental organizations as they empower at-risk communities and challenge systems that generate hunger and cause environmental depredation.
