Dirty sinks

Reason #1 for Ladato Si: If you leave your sink dirty, you can get roaches. Roaches bring diseases. Likewise, if we fail to care for the planet, humanity will suffer. Ladato Si is not a neo-pagan encyclical calling to canonize "St. Mother Earth." Rather, it recognizes that care for the environment is a human issue. Harming the environment harms people.

Thus, as the Holy Father states in the introduction, we are the stewards of the Earth, not its master and lord. That right is reserved to the Lord God Himself. Dominion does not mean license to take and pillage the land as we please, but to responsibly care for it.
