Back to Part 4: A leaflet so that people will ACT
Back to Part 5: It's now divided into TWO leaflets

Leaflet part 8: how to write a biodiversity leaflet - asking people to print their own

It is now mid August 2015.

September 1st is an important day for many reasons:

Start of Creation time (Creation Time: 1 Sept - Second Sunday in October)
The Pope has just declared it is should be for Catholics a World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation 
There is a "Pray and Fast for the Climate" Movement encouraging churches to have fasts or services or both on the 1st of each month leading up to the COP21 talks on climates in Paris this December.

This was an incentive for me to get the leaflet used.
I send news emails on behalf of Green Christian to its members once or twice a month, so this upcoming 1st Sept seemed a good opportunity. So last night off the email went, some  with the pdf leaflet attached, and some where it was given as a link: -inviting members for their comments.    http://www.greenchristian.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/wildlife-leaflet-1-triptych.pdf     

Here is the current page with the downloadable leaflets: 

This morning I received a comment from one person: (Thank you Sheila)
"I like the Wildlife and Biodiversity leaflet but when I printed out the triptych I found that I lost some of the text on the left-hand side (both pages) so I can't really make use of it in this form."

May people have ink jet printers that insist on having a left hand or top margin.  Will this prevent lots of people from printing triptych leaflets?
