Despite its associations with the verdant spring, the way we tend to observe Passover is anything but green. So we’re offering this guide to making your Passover less wasteful and more sustainable, from green cleaning products to recycled wine glasses. “Like” it to share it with your friends. We hope it’s helpful!
Eco-Friendly Cleaning Supplies
There are some great green and eco-friendly cleaning supplies out there to help you rid your home of hametz. Simple Green is an all purpose cleaner, and there’s also Free and Clear. We also love these Full Circle sponges and brushes made from recycled products, and these microfiber eco-friendly Cleaning Cloths.
Recycled and Reusable Tableware
These greener and reusable dishes and pans wed the convenience of disposable with the conscience of sustainable. Preserve Everyday Tableware offers recycled, dishwasher-safe sets of 4 plates, cups, and bowls, 24-count cutlery sets, and 3 nested mixing bowls. Or, try this set of beautiful bamboo dishes that are single-use, but totally biodegradable.
Shatterproof and Recycled Wine Glasses & Accessories
For the wine at your seder table we suggest these recyclable and shatterproof wine glasses or these recycled glass wine glasses. And if you’re looking to bring some rustic class to your brisket, we love this serving tray made out of an old wine barrel. And how about this wooden handled corkscrew to open your wine?
We hope you enjoy the selection as much as we do! And check out our Classic Passover 2013 Gift Guide for our favorite seder plates, matzah covers, and seder essentials.
