    You may be interested in a resolution passed by Catholic Women’s League Australia at their National Conference in September which takes up precisely this theme, establishing a two year initiative to be known as Loving Our Common Home (LOCH). The aim of the initiative is to encourage ethical consumer choices through the development of study and reflection materials for use by members throughout Australia.
