This year, Passover is couched between Earth Hour (March 28) and Earth Day (April 22), and what better way to continue your commitment to the planet than by preparing and hosting a green seder? Passover starts today and continues on through next week (April 8-16), but there is still time to incorporate a little green into your holiday.

Preparation

-A staple of Passover is the pre-Passover cleaning to get rid of all the bread in your home. Instead of defaulting to just any store-bought cleaner, invest in cleaners that are nontoxic and are made from natural ingredients. If you’re looking to buy a safe cleaner, Seventh Generation offers a wide variety. If you want to venture into darker green territory, try making your own cleaners from ingredients you can find around your home.

-Flowers are a great way to decorate your home for this spring holiday. If you grow your own flowers, display them proudly around your home for your family and friends. If you want to buy flowers, make sure they are locally grown, and preferably organic. Potted flowers and herbs are a more sustainable option because they last longer; plus, you can give them away at the end of the meal as parting gifts.
