Why should we at Calvin College care about the environment?

We are called to be stewards of the creation in which we are embedded. "Our purpose is to infuse Calvin's vigorous liberal arts education with thoughtful, Biblically-based principles that lay a foundation for living in a way that honors the Creator and His beloved creation. The Reformed tradition recognizes the important role of creation as God's general revelation of goodness and grace. We also recognize our responsibility to interpret, wisely use, and compassionately care for God's creation. In doing so, we take seriously the Biblical mandate to be stewards of God's good earth." (Calvin College Statement on Sustainability)

God spoke: “Let us make human begins in our image, make them reflecting our nature so they can be responsible for the fish in the sea, the birds in the air, the cattle,
And, yes, Earth itself, and every animal that moves on the face of the Earth.”
God created human beings; he created them godlike, reflecting God’s nature.
He created them male and female. God blessed them:
Prosper! Reproduce! Fill the earth! Take charge!
Be responsible for fish in the sea
and birds in the air,
for every living thing that moves on the face of the Earth.”
(Genesis 1:26-28, The Message)
