Give up Carbon for Lent

Today marks the beginning of “Lent” for Christians, the 40 days of the liturgical year leading up to Easter – where Christians make a ‘sacrifice’ for Jesus.

I suggest everyone (Christians and non) can adopt this calendar for 40 days and going forward.  (Traditionally, Christians celebrate the end of lent by indulging in what they gave up – Don’t start wasting electricity & gas once Easter hits!)

Here’s the Lenten Carbon Fast calendar courtesy of Popluteran:
