Passover and Earth Day- A Lot in Common!

Celebrate Passover and Earth Day at the same time? Yes, you can! You can be green while enjoying all the traditions. Remember, Passover includes cleaning out the old and starting fresh. Just by ridding your home of excess, that is, allowing yourself and your environment to 'breathe', you have done at least one small thing to 'improve your world'.

When we look at Passover as a celebration of being "set free", we can apply this toward being also "set free" from things and possessions that tend to 'clog up' our lives. Freedom is a great feeling, but comes with a responsibility to take care of who we are, where we live, and the world we leave behind. Today, we deal with the plagues of climate issues and the such, things that really affect us all.

So enjoy Passover, but don't pass over the chance to go the extra step and look at who you are and where you live. It's those little things that really add up to help create a better world. Don't take for granted what you have been given! Giving back is the perspective of living green. And don't forget: "The less you have, the less you have to clean up!"
