Making Your Chanukah More Sustainable


We’re big fans of the blog Neesh Noosh (“A Jewish Woman’s Year-Long Journey to Discover Faith in Food’). Neesh Noosh means “tasty treats” in Hebrew, and LA-based blogger Sarah Newman loves to share her passion for cooking, health, and sustainable agriculture.

Chanukah begins tomorrow night, and for those of you observing the Jewish holiday, Sarah has eight great tips for making the celebrations more sustainable.

Here’s a quick suggestion — use organic apples and potatoes. As Sarah explains, “Apples and potatoes are ranked #1 and #12, respectively, on Environmental Working Group’s “Dirty Dozen” list of produce with the highest levels of pesticide residue. Take pesticides out of Chanukah and prepare your latkes and applesauce with safer, healthier and tastier organic apples and potatoes.”

Check out “8 Ways to Make Your Chanukah More Sustainable” for more helpful tips.
