Cade Dopp started this petition to Gerald Causse

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints encourages its members to be good stewards of the Earth. However, it is a common practice for congregations to print full-page weekly announcements for each member. We ask that Bishop Gerald Causse would direct congregations to reduce the amount of waste that is produced by printing these announcements. We could keep *500,000 pieces of paper and *$50,000 out of the landfill every week.

Possible solutions include:

1) Post announcements to social media and provide paper announcements only for members without access to the internet

2) Print announcements 4 per page instead of 1 per page

*There are 6.5 million members in the USA. Assuming the 1/3 of them are active and that 1/4 receive a paper announcement would mean that 500,000 pages are printed each week. Assuming a cost to print of $0.10/page, it would cost $50,000 to print these announcements every week.
