save our sacred woodlands

Following on from previous posts about green pilgrimage, the importance of the environment and the like, there is a very interesting article here by Matthew Cresswell on how religions can help save woodlands, forest and biodiversity; but also the terrible effects we can have, for example in pilgrims leaving vast amounts of litter and (literally) crap along the Way.

And great respect to Rebekah and Keith whose Advent discipline has been to clear up the Camino Frances in Palencia.

I missed this article — thanks for sharing. I find it depressing how some pilgrim routes (well, I’m thinking of parts of the Camino Frances) are awash with litter. There’s absolutely no need for it.

Thanks Robert. Yes, I’m full of admiration for those who clear it up (especially as Spain has no money for municipal work).
