THE MOTHERS' UNION TEN COMMANDMENTS

The Mothers' Union is a Christian organization with 3.6 million members worldwide. In October 2006, the union published a booklet entitled Fair Enough? which proposed ten modern "commandments" to aid the poor and fight climate change:

1. Turn off the television and other electrical equipment at the mains.
2. Use energy-efficient lightbulbs.
3. Use computers less.
4. Turn down the central heating by one degree centigrade.
5. Reduce plane travle.
6. Use public transport.
7. Buy secondhand clothes and other goods.
8. Switch to ethically registered banks and investments.
9. Use local shops that stock fair-trade, vegetarian, and organic produce.
10. Reuse and recycle everything where possible.


Impropriety is the soul of wit.
W. Somerset Maugham (1874-1965)
