Eco Purim

With the holiday of Purim drawing near it’s a great opportunity to rethink bad holiday habits. Here’s a few things to mull over:

  • Think reusable with the Mishloach Manot. Baskets look nice, but they usually go straight to the garbage.
  • Save those bottles, some places even give you money for them… (usually supermarkets)
  • Do you need to buy a costume? Be creative, see what you can find around the house.
  • Think eco when filling those baskets!

    I try to spend more on matanot l’evyonim than mishloach manot; I’m lucky in that my friends are not so much in need of the calories. I also avoid sending anything with added sugar; there’s so much junk in the average mishloach manot that lots of people start the day with a sugar high. (This year I’ll be sending home-made rolls, grape juice, plus some fruit/veggies, perhaps with a dip.)
